    I got confused the kind of questions!

    I, by chance, did a kind of Adjective + Prepositions, in which i haven't got the meaning precisely of the following statement "he's married with 2 kids"??
    I got quite confused of WITH in the sentence.
    Thank you for your help!

    I found: with with - Definition and pronunciation | Oxford Advanced Learners Dictionary at OxfordLearnersDictionaries.com No 2

    Practical English Usage: entry 631 No 5 - possession

    English Grammar in Use: unit 130 C

    In your example 'with' means 'have'. He is married and has two kids.

    I am not sure that I got this one right. Every time I look up 'to marry, marriage' I get redirected to 'divorce'.

    If that happened to all of them, I believe you missed what I added
