"Har dere vært gift lenge?"

Translation:Have you been married for a long time?

Why isn't it "Har dere vært gifte lenge?" ?


That is also an accepted translation. 'gift' can be used to describe a single person or a couple, 'gifte' is used to describe multiple couples, so you say "Har dere vært gift lenge?" to a couple.
