    natural

    How can I express the idea that something is to be expected and it comes as no surprise that happens?

    e.g.
    It is NATURAL somebody to want to have friends.
    It is NATURAL after 10 years of marriage me to know him well.
    It is NATURAL him to be tired after so much work

    Are these sentences correct?

    Re: natural

    You have grasped the idea of "natural" correctly, but the connective "for" is often required.

    It is NATURAL for somebody to want to have friends.
    It is NATURAL after 10 years of marriage for me to know him well.
    It is NATURAL for him to be tired after so much work
