While progressing through a grammer module for TOEFL certification, I came across an example that "puzzles" me.
SHE HAS BEEN MARRIED FOR ONE YEAR.
Since it uses have/has -perfect tense; since it uses "-ed" -past tense; therefore, Past Perfect tense. However, would this be Past Perfect Continuous, since SHE is still in a state of wedded bliss? (One can only hope!)
I realize that Continuous uses the "-ing" form, but the act of Matrimony isn't a continual, on going event.
SHE HAS BEEN MARRYING PEOPLE ALL YEAR.
SHE HAS BEEN MARRIED ALL YEAR.
Are thes the same "tense"?
