    Smile is this sentence correct?

    I never felt my life so in the vicinity of becoming a married man as I did in the recent months.

    Thank you.

    No, I'm afraid not. Do you mean that recently you have felt like getting married?

    Yes, I did mean what you said. I wanted to know if that expression is right or not.

    No, it's not, as bhai said. He had to guess at the meaning. He guessed better than I would have.
    I'm not a teacher, but I write for a living. Please don't ask me about 2nd conditionals, but I'm a safe bet for what reads well in (American) English.
