I know my question may seem silly to native speakers, but l am really interested in knowing which construction is more common in everyday speech:
He is married and has two sons.
He is married, with two sons.

The question is which is more common: I would say, "He is married with two sons" is common because the context is informal and casual often spoken between friends, family and acquaintances in a nonchalant manner.
The latter, "He is married and has two sons" is more factual and formal like a report.
I do agree with Jim that the word "boys" (or girls) would used more often in casual conservations, than not. For example: He is married with two boys living at home.
