2006Is this kind of sentence, common usage?
If you mean your first sentence, it is a good sentence and certainly can be used.
By the way, did you know that your friend Leslie is getting hitched by June?
I think the above sentence, with "is getting hitched" and "by", is quite awkward, and I wouldn't say that.
I would say '.....friend Leslie will be married by June.'
I have a doubt!
if we replace "June" by "May" (or "April", if you will), don't you think the sentence get dubious?
"May" and "April" can also be names of real people, right?
would it be correct to interpret the sentence as "Leslie is getting hooked by his girlfriend whose name is May/April"?
