    Question are those sentences correct?

    Time is more valuable when you share it with someone.

    Welcome to the forum, Melissa.


    Time is more valuable, when you share it with someone.
    Time is worthy more, when you share it with someone.

    Remember to start all sentences with a capital letter. I think that these sentences read better without commas.

    Remember to start every sentence with a capital letter.

    Sentence 1 - Remove the comma and it's OK although I'm not sure I agree with the sentiment.
    Sentence 2 - No. We say that something is "worth more", not "worthy more". Again, the comma is unnecessary.
    Remember - correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing make posts much easier to read.

    Always capitalise the first letter of a sentence.
    Smilies, if you use them, go far better at the end of a sentence.
