Are You Married in Russian

“Are you married?” is “Ты замужем?” (“Ty zamuzhem?”) in Russian. It’s an analog of the question “Are you single?” (“Ты свободна?” (“Ty svobodna?”)). “Zamuzh” is a common Slavic word which appeared by combining the preposition “za” (behind) with the noun “muzh” (husband). Initially the word “muzh” meant a “male” or a “mature male who reached puberty”. The second meaning was a “warrior of prince’s armed force close to the ruler”. The question “Are you married?” also can be translated like “Ты состоишь в браке” (“Ty sostoyish v brake?”).
