"J'étais mariée quand j'avais 20 ans."

"J'étais mariée quand j'avais 20 ans."

"I was married when I was 20." Does that mean that during my 20s I was married and not that I got married when I was 20? Thanks!

Bonjour Sherry ! It does mean "I was married", but I agree it's a bit of a confusing sentence. I've decided to add already to make it clearer: "J'étais déjà mariée quand j'avais 20 ans." (I was already married when I was 20.) Bonne Année !
Merci, Aurélie!
