Mitaine, can I ask you kind of a weird question? Do French people think that english speakers sound weird when they speak French? I ask because most people think that French people sound cool when they speak English, but I've never heard anyone's opinion on how we sound speaking French.
That liason is optional, depending on the level of formality. So in this case is informal. Check this link:
Yes, the conjugation works like this:
- I read / I am reading= Je lis
- You read / You are reading = Tu lis (familiar form, always singular)
- He/She reads (or) He/She is reading = Il/Elle lit
- We read / We are reading = Nous lisons
- You read / You are reading = Vous lisez (formal or polite form, may be either singular or plural)
They read / They are reading = Ils/Elles lisent
You should check the conjugation for example here: http://french.about.com/od/verb_conjugations/a/lire.htm
pentagona- lit is a bed. lit is also the verb to read : il/elle lit. For marriage? It needs an explanation. It's an old expression.

We'll say that you're from the second bed. Tu es du second lit.

When it eventually feels and sounds like you are doing it all wrong and awkward, you are probably doing it right. :-)
