    Dear people,
    Please, would you be so kind as to tell me if my use of the conditional in the following sentences is correct:

    1. If he would be born again, he would certainly behave differently.
    2. If he were to be born again, he would not make the same mistakes.
    3. If she would be born again, she thought, she would be neither religious or atheist but would choose her own path.
    4.If she had been born in another family, she would be certainly studying at university today.

    Re: Conditional

    2&4 are OK- without more context, I can't see why you're using would in the if-clause.
