|Meaning||:||My older sister is married.|
In the example shown above, the example itself is for the translation of ‘result of state’. The state which is shown as a result is the state of being married. It means that my older sister stated in the sentence has already married and currently or right now she is still in the state of being married. It is a result of the action done in the past but the result of it is still ongoing as the current state also.

In the above example, the verb which is used is ‘kekkon suru’ and it is translated as ‘to marry’. Based on the above pattern to get the result state of being married, it needs to be changed into ‘kekkon shite’ + ‘imasu’ so that the purpose to show the result of state of being married.
