Please, look at the following three sentenses and tell me the difference among them.

1. He will marry her next month.

2. He marries her next month.

3. He is marring her next month.

1. Rather unnatural: statements of planned action rarely use the 'will' form.

2. Also unnatural unless the wedding is to be considered as an element in some kind of 'schedule'.

3. Yes (sp. 'marrYing'): the present progressive is the most natural form to express a definite future intention.
