    Being pliable

    Would you please take a look at my sentence and correct my mistakes? I am not sure if it is correct.

    Peter's friends accused him of being pliable and indulging his wife's whims.

    You need a 'to' after indulging.

    Re: Being pliable

    Tedmc, that's wrong. "To indulge" is fine with no preposition after it.

    He indulged his wife.
    He indulged her.
    He indulged his wife's whims.
    He indulged her whims.
    Remember - if you don't use correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing, anything you write will be incorrect.

    Sorry, I got that mixed up with 'cater to whims'.
