  1. Married

    Married is a BBC radio comedy with science fiction themes, first aired on BBC Radio 4. The main character is Robin Lightfoot, a confirmed bachelor with a successful architectural practice, who wakes up one day in a parallel universe in which he is married with two children. Unfortunately his counterpart in the parallel universe, who has evidently been swapped into our universe, is a cad, a womanizer, a swindler and possibly a murderer. Only the younger of the two children, Ned, believes Robin's story, largely because he reads about parallel universes in comic books. Apart from his previously unknown wife Leslie, and the children Maxine and Ned, Robin finds the new universe populated by people he already knows, but who are different. His former business partner Dirk is still his partner in this universe, but the business is writing greeting card messages, and Dirk, who is married in our universe, is an unmarried sexual addict in the alternate one. The ruling monarch is a King John, son of King Richard who dies during the first series. Richard was apparently the son of Edward VIII who got cold feet at the last minute when about to abdicate. King John, however, is openly gay so the prospects for an immediate heir are not good. While as Prince John he was known as an adventurer, setting records for ballooning, soon after his coronation he abandons the Royal spouse in favour of his gay lover, who was also his partner in his adventures.

Examples of married in a Sentence

  1. EMEASOBA GEORGE:

    If you find someone who makes you smile, who checks up on you often to see if you are okay. Who watches over you and wants the best for you. Who loves and respects you genuinely. And above all, if you are so fortunate to find or meet someone who inspires or motivates you no matter what happens. Don’t let him or her go. Better still, never take him or her for granted. Because, someone like that is hard to find. Besides that, if you are still single or never married permit me to tell you this, it is advisable and encouraging to get married to such person(s). Yes! because he or she will be or become a friendly and extraordinary husband or wife to you. I mean, you will have little or nothing at all to worry about him or her. In other words, both of you will get on (or along) like a house on fire. That is to say, you will have a very good and enviable relationship. Mark my words. Anyway, IMHO in my humble (honest) opinion. ~Emeasoba George
