    are these sentences right?

    Hi there,

    The following sentences are out of context. I just would like to know if they are gramatically correct as well if they make sense.

    Thanks!

    He struggles for going out with her because her parents are against this relationship
    When the summer finishes, these two students happen to be in the same high school
    Do you think (that the?) euthanasia should be legal?
    The accident left him in a bed without any kind of mobility
    She wants to re-establish the school as a place for disabled children
    The parents trouble for their son
    After that day the life of her parents fell in despair
    If you see the film, it will charm you!

    OK. You could omit the 'a'
    She wants to re-establish the school as a place for disabled children
    OK

    The parents are troubled about their son, or, the parents worry about their son.
