    Martin and Beatrix had been preparing

    I am wondering if my sentence is grammatically correct.

    Martin and Beatrix had been preparing their wedding for months when he announced he did not love her anymore.

    Ahhh, Beatrix, now there's a name you don't hear much any more.
    Remember - if you don't use correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing, anything you write will be incorrect.

    I think AmE prefers anymore for the adverb related to time.

    We don't do that anymore.

    He doesn't drink any more now than he ever has.
