    "Against all her tantrum and plenty of tears, she was betrothed to Hendrik."

    Have I used "the tantrum" correctly? Also, is a tantrum contains the tears thing too, so should I drop the tears part?

    Re: tantrum


    This sounds odd to me. I would say "In spite of her tantrum..." or "Ignoring her tantrum..."

    tantrum - Dictionary of English I would say the tears are included in "tantrum"
