It's me again


Explanation:
... considering that you are in Argentina, it is advisable to ask: "SOS casada?" That is the way they speak in Buenos Aires, at least.If in the rest of Argentina, "Eres" will be fine ( not SOS).

¿estás casada? or ¿está usted casada?


Explanation:
While some consider using *ser* (*soy, sos, eres*, &c) more formal, *estar* is actually more common.

Note the relationship of *casado/a* 'married' to *casa* 'house'. In effect, *casado/a* means 'belonging to a separate household (separate from a person's parents' household)'
