    have been married or marrying?

    I really confuse on the below question, pls help.

    example: Dan and jenny are married. They got married exactly 20 years ago, so today is their 20th wedding anniversary.
    Q: why "They have been married for 20 years." is correct?
    Q: if it also correct for "They have been marrying for 20 years"?


    Pls advise.

    You have already been told in your original thread that this is not correct. If you have follow-up questions, please post them in that thread.
