    After getting promoted

    I am wondering if my sentence sounds natural. I feel there is a mistake somewhere, but I can't find it. Would you please correct my mistakes?

    After getting promoted, married, and buying his house, John thought he had never had it so good.

    Re: After getting promoted

    Married is stranded there, connecting with neither the preceding nor the following phrase. Say either getting promoted, getting married, and buying a house or getting promoted, marrying,
    and buying a house.
