    simple question

    hi teachers,

    is it right to say ' when you reach the age of 30,you'll merely think of a marriage'?
    i'm not sure with the last part of the sentence.

    thanks.

    Re: simple question

    The last part is unclear- what does merely mean here? Also, why the indefinite article? Do you mean 'you'll only think of marriage' or 'marriage will only be a thought'?
