    Question My main example: He is in love with money more than his wife.

    My main example: He is in love with money more than his wife.
    because this main sentence is ambiguous, I write the followings in the way we can guess from the main sentence:


    Are all of the following sentences correct?

    He is in love with money more than he is in love with his wife.
    He is in love with money more than he is with his wife.
    He is in love with money more than with his wife.

    And, Are all of the following sentences correct as well?

    He is in love with money more than his wife is in love with money.
    He is in love with money more than his wife is.
    He is in love with money more than with his wife is with money.
    So interested in learning English.

    I prefer the suggestions in posts #2 and #3 but for your information, all of the sentences you wrote are fine except the last one.

    So many thanks Jutfrank.
    I meant:( the last one) , one 'with' was redundant.
    He is in love with money more than his wife is with money.
