My wife is Russian. When we first got married, she used to mess up the following phrase:

"I got married to an American man".
Russian: Я вышла замуж за американца
Back to English: I married an American

Her phrase (which left people wondering what our wedding was like), actually translates closer to the original English phrase:

"I got married on an American man"
Russian: Я женился на американской человек
Back to English: I married an American man
