    " I have married " does it mean that i'm still married or not ?
    and what is the difference between it and " I married "

    Neither is very natural.

    If you are talking about the past-time event, say I got married (in June). If you are talking about your current state, say I'm married (now).

    You need to concentrate on your spacing around punctuation. Follow these rules at all times:

    - Don't put a space before a comma, full stop, question mark or exclamation mark.
    - Always put a space after a comma, full stop, question mark or exclamation mark.
    - Don't put a space after opening quotation marks.
    - Don't put a space before closing quotation marks.

    Remember to capitalise the word "I" (first person singular) every time you write it.
    Remember - if you don't use correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing, anything you write will be incorrect.
