    Re: Your cousins and friends meet at one of their homes (at the home of one of "them"

    There's no apostrophe in yours or theirs.

    We discuss things. We don't discuss about them.

    People might meet at one of their homes. Don't use the longer version.

    "at one of your homes" means you have several homes. Just making sure that's what you meant.

    I want to say that they can meet at anybody's home. I mean they can gather at the home of any of their friends. What is the way to say this?

    But you wrote this as well "at one of your homes" means you have several homes. Just making sure that's what you meant."

    At night they discuss several things but later end up discussing ghosts. Is this sentence correct now?
