Hi, in the question where
“J'ai épousé Marianne”
“Je l'ai épousée”.
Why “épousée”? The aux. verb is avoir, and we’re using a direct object pronoun, so I thought it should be “épousé”.
It is because of the rule of agreement of the preceding direct object pronoun and the past participle with avoir -
Je l'ai épousée
l' = Marianne which is feminine -----> épousé takes an extra -e.
Je les ai mariés = I married them
Take a look at the following Kwiziq lesson for more examples:
Hope this helps!
