    would not want him with...

    Are these sentences correct:

    1-I would not want John with a smart wife.
    2-I would not want to have John with a smart wife.

    (Meaning: I would not want John to have a smart wife.)

    3-I would not want him with too much responsibility.
    4-I would not want to have him with too much responsibility.

    (Meaning: I would not want him to have too much responsibility.)

    5-People would not like a fool like him with a lot of power.
    6-People would not like to have a fool like him with a lot of power.

    (Meaning: People would not like a fool like him to have a lot of power.)

    Gratefully,
    Navi.
