    People wondered how Bob and Anna's marriage

    Would you please correct the mistakes in my sentence? Is it correct with a comma after "lasted"?

    People wondered how Bob and Anna's marriage lasted, because they were as different as night and day.

    Re: People wondered how Bob and Anna's marriage

    There are no mistakes. It's a tricky sentence, and you got everything right.
    I'm not a teacher. I speak American English. I've tutored writing at the University of Southern Maine and have done a good deal of copy editing and writing, occasionally for publication.
