    (Ronbee) and others - REQUIRE

    I am going to register, thanks.

    Ronbee,

    Longman Language Activator, page 887

    - Marriage requires commitment and sacrifice from both partners.

    - Driving regards a great deal of concentration.

    Itīs a formal use of require, but I guess it can be used this way!

    What do you think about this ?

    Thanks.

    - Driving regards a great deal of concentration.

    This is wrong to me:
    - Driving requires a great deal of concentration.
    This is fine.
