    Think vs consider to be


    I would like to ask if the phrase think something as an alternative of consider something to be is still in usage in modern English.

    I think the marriage a farce (I consider the marriage to be a farce)
    I think him a good man (I consider him to be a good man)
    Etc ...

    (Does not think something sound a little bit old-fashioned?)

    Thanks a lot

    It is old-fashioned, but acceptable.
