Why is the word 'ma' and not maja?
małżeństwo(marriage) is a singular form so you have to add 'ma'.
I saw an answer on the last question that helped. If a word describes a group, it is singular. Kind of neat but definitely gonna be a headache for a while.
The clue is in tamto (singular)
This is talking about a married couple as a unit, not as two individuals.
Think "this family is going to the beach" indtead of "the members of this family are going to the beach"
Why does this plural subject take a singular verb?
