She -subject of the sentence/Pronoun typeShe has been married to her husband for 10 years.
I thought `married' was a `main verb' in this sentence.
Now, someone told, it is a `adjective'.
So, I am being confused.
Could you help me on this?
I'm wondering what grammar expert would say 'married' is an adjective in the sentence?Grammar expert would say it is a present perfect sentence where `married' is an `adjective'.
I agree that the past participle is acting as an adjective in "I'm married". It's also acting as an adjective in "I've been married for 10 years"in "I'm married", "married" is an adjective, just as "dead" in "I'm dead".
Dick is married now.http://forum.wordreference.com/announcement.php?f=6&a=42
He was married in Chicago in June.
Therefore, he has been married since June.
I think, in the first sentence, the word `married' is an adjective.
I think, in the second sentence, the word `married' is a verb. (it is a passive sentence)
I think, in the third sentence, the word `married' is an adjective.
You are right on all counts.
