[QUOTE=arzgol;762466]When I was a kid, I got often poor grades at school because I wasted my time playing with my friends. One day my mother told me, I should study better to get a degree, otherwise when I got married I had to ask my husband for money whenever I want to buy something.

(1) A teacher will soon answer you.

(3) This is how I (a non-teacher) would say it:
When I was a poor kid, I often got poor grades in school
because I wasted my time playing with my friends. One day
my mother told me that I should study harder if I wanted to
earn a degree; otherwise, when I got married I would have to
ask my husband whenever I wanted to buy something.
