    can you say that someone "will be getting married" as a future continuous?

    Exclamation Re: will be getting married

    Though I am not a professional teacher, I have no hesitation to say that the sentence " Some one will be getting married" is in the Future continous tense.

    I agree with Manas, it is Future Continous.
    It means that someone will be in the middle of getting married

    If you are in the middle of getting married, then you are half way through the service or ceremony of marriage.

    "will be getting married" is indicating a future intention of marriage.

    I meant someone will be "in the process of getting married".
    Technically, if the ceremony starts at 8: 30 and ends at 9:30, then someone, at 9:00, will be in the middle of getting married. Thanks for correcting me anyway.
