    Smile Does this sound OK in English?

    Hi, dear experts. Could you, please, tell if the following sounds OK in English:

    1. "Strongly expressed negative attitude, as well as negative thinking is found to exist in Bulgaria. Positive ideas go unnoticed, and even when they attract attention, it is insignificant."

    2. "Celebrating children’s birthdays sometimes costs the patents their monthly income. In my opinion, this is done to demonstrate their being well off, or rather to show off. "

    3. "I think that equality among older couples is due to the fact that whatever they have created and achieved in life, they have done it together."

    Yes, they all sound okay.

    Watch your commas, I'd add one here:

    "Strongly expressed negative attitude, as well as negative thinking, is found to exist in Bulgaria. Positive ideas go unnoticed, and even when they attract attention, it is insignificant."

    And note you have 'patents' for 'parents' in sentence 2! :)
