    Re: subjunctive mood

    In my opinion none of the answers provided are correct.

    "He wishes he had never married her" would work, though.

    Re: subjunctive mood

    'Regrets' is the only possible answer, assuming you've typed "never" instead of "ever".
    I would say: He regrets having ever married her. or He regrets that he ever married her.
