    in/with haste

    HI, Good day everyone.

    Are "in" and "with" both acceptable in this context?

    His father had just died and he didn't want to marry in/with haste.
    Thank you very much.
    Happy Chinese New Year.

    Re: in/with haste

    "In haste" implies making a decision that is not well thought out. He made the decision to get married quickly.
    "With haste" suggests something itself was done quickly. That is, the ceremony itself was hurried.
