    Is this sentence correct?

    Since I loved him enough to marry him, I worked ceaselessly for the next 15 years, hoping that he would some day clean up his act if I stuck by him and supported him.

    Hi,

    Firstly, I would like to know how the sentence reads for the natives.

    Also, as to the underlined phrase, I wonder if it's OK to omit the first "him".

    Or!!!

    Is the whole "and supported him" unnecessary?

    Thanks in advance.

    It's possible, though I would write 'Since I had loved him ..'

    It's possible, but awkward, in my opinion..

    Is the whole "and supported him" unnecessary?
    I don't think so.
