    Re: Expression

    Dear Teacher
    Sorry but I am still puzzled with this expression. My question is twofold
    1. What is the correct way to say ? a) Ill faded love affair or b) Ill fated love affair
    2. What is the meaning of this expression
    Thank you for getting back to me.

    .
    unlucky, ending in failure, doomed/destined to fail.

    We can speak of Romeo and Juliet's ill-fated love. They both died as a result of it.
