Please, explain this It's really difficult to use mixed Conditionals. For instance, what is the difference between these two sentences: If I were you, I would marry him. If I were you, I would have married him.

Bob is right. Further explanation: in the first sentence, “marrying him” is still a possibility; the woman has the ability to decide, right now, whether to marry him or not, and her friend is giving her advice to say “yes.” In the second sentence, “marrying him” is no longer possible; the opportunity to marry him was in the past, and the woman didn’t marry him, and now her friend is saying “you made a mistake by not marrying him.”

The first is advice for the present and the second advice for the past.
