    Angry Help

    Please help me with the continous form of the verb to marry. My spell check is not working correctly. If I was using it to say MARRING the need for good customer service with meeting sales targets. How do you spell marrying which way?
    Many thanks This is anoying me

    The rule for words ending in Y is simply to add "-ing":

    carry + ing = carrying
    try + ing = trying
    marry + ing = marrying

    Your spell checker is working correctly: "marring" is the continuous form of "to mar", which means to damage or to disfigure slightly. That's why you should never rely on a spell checker.

    Or, as I call it, a "spiel chequer".
