    without later

    1-They went to the movies without having dinner, which is not what they usually do.

    Can one tell whether they usually have dinner before or after going to the movies?

    =============================

    Is this sentence correct:

    2-They went to the movies without later having dinner, which is not what they usually do.



    Gratefully,
    Navi.

    not a teacher

    1-They went to the movies without having dinner, which is not what they usually do.
    2-They went to the movies without later having dinner, which is not what they usually do.


    1) This sentence gives no indication as to whether they usually had dinner before or after the movies.
    2) This sentence is correct English and does clarify the matter.
