    Stay happy and live in prosperity

    Hi teachers,


    I have translated a sentence from my language into English. Please check it and let me know if it's correct.


    Is "Stay happy and live in prosperity" correct?


    Many thanks.

    If you mean to ask if the sentence is grammatical, yes.

    But it's not good conversational English. Tell us the context or situation, and we'll tell you how we might phrase it.

    I am not a teacher.

    Are you sure your native language isn't Vulcan?

    Live long and prosper.

    My native language is Urdu.

    Is "Be happy and prosper" good conversational English?

    Re: Stay happy and live in prosperity

    How about "I wish you/Wishing you health and happiness"?

    (This is more something you would write than say. We don't usually say such flowery things to one another.)
    I'm not a teacher, but I write for a living. Please don't ask me about 2nd conditionals, but I'm a safe bet for what reads well in (American) English.
