    In his youth Peter espoused

    I am wondering if my sentence sounds natural. Would you please correct my mistakes? Is my punctuation correct?

    In his youth Peter espoused socialist values only to replace them with capitalist ones later on in his life.

    Re: In his youth Peter espoused

    Add a comma after "youth" and it looks OK to me. You could remove "his" before "life" too.
    Remember - if you don't use correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing, anything you write will be incorrect.
