    Of or For

    Hi,

    Which is correct?:

    1. because of your hatred of her, you can't move on.
    2. because of your hatred for her, you can't move on.

    Please explain your choice. Thanks in advance.

    1. Because of your hatred of her, you can't move on.
    2. Because of your hatred for her, you can't move on.

    I feel that both are correct. I would probably chose (2) to avoid repeating "of".

    Thanks! I would appreciate if a teacher would confirm your message and explain.

    At least three teachers have clicked the Like button. That should be sufficient confirmation of the validity of JMurray's reply and explanation of his reasoning.
