    Question Help!

    Could you help me and write me your opinion?
    Are the both sentences correct ? Or which one sounds more naturally?
    Young adults do not have kids and a family for who they are responsible.
    Young people do not have kids and a family who they are responsible for.
    Thank you !

    Re: Help!

    Formal: Young adults do not have kids and a family for whom they are responsible.
    Less formal: Young people do not have kids and a family (who) they are responsible for.

    You first sentence, "Young adults do not have kids and a family for who they are responsible", is an unfortunate mix of the formal and less formal.

    Please try to give your threads more helpful titles - 'For who ...?' would have been fine for this.
