    She did not see

    Dear teachers,
    Please, would you correct the mistakes in my sentence:

    1. She did not see him as a husband and a man but rather as a means to fulfill her dreams and acquire more material things.

    Re: She did not see

    I'm going to go out on a limb here and read the maximum possible into this passage.

    She did not find him sexually attractive but she accepted him because he was capable of providing her with a lot of material goods.

    It could be read much more mildly, but that's what I think the writer really meant.

    Re: She did not see

    I am wondering if it would be grammatically correct if I write the previous sentence in this way:
    1. She did not consider him her husband but rather as a means to fulfill her dreams and acquire more material goods.
