    Do you wish to get married in

    Hi teachers,

    "Do you wish to get married after two months after your engagement?" I think this sentence looks strange because of two 'afters".

    I changed it into:
    "Do you wish to get married in two months after your engagement?" Is it correct?

    Thanks.

    Re: Do you wish to get married in

    In AmE we don't really use engage as an inchoative very often, but do approach the concept as a stative:

    "Do you really want to get married after being engaged for just 2 months?"
