    married as a (verb or adjective)

    Dick is married now.
    He was married in Chicago in June.
    Therefore, he has been married since June.


    I think, in the first sentence, the word `married' is an adjective.

    I think, in the second sentence, the word `married' is a verb. (it is a passive sentence)

    I think, in the third sentence, the word `married' is an adjective.

    Please, tell me, I am right or wrong.
