    It's untranslatable (at least out of context).

    I am not too sure about the verb "to marry" since it depends on whether the subject is a man or woman.

    I am getting married. (if "I" refers to a man)
    Я женюсь

    I am getting married. (if "I" refers to a woman)
    Я выйду замуж

    We are getting married.
    Они женятся

    You're good
    ты (очень) хорошо

    I hope this helps.
    Какая разница, умереть богатым или бедным?

    Какой толк от богатства если ты не счастлив.

    I've pictured to myself a situation when this phrase could be used:

    A guy asks his friends to a wedding.
    They tell him: Wow!!! It's a frightfully good thing!
    He: Вам хорошо, а мне жениться.

    In this context it means - Of course, you will be happy to drink, dance and such but I'm in no laughing mood - I have to marry...




    By the way feel free to correct my errors in English.

    I've pictured (to myself) a situation when this phrase could be used.

    These words "to myself" are not needed here. It is perfectly understood without them.

    Maybe it is better to say "It's an awfully good thing!".
    "Frightfully" and "good" do not go well together.

    I knew my "English" is somewhat (completely indeed) artificial.

    It's a phrase of a song which was written by "Сектор газа".

    Awright, I've found the words.
