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

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.
