    Unhappy on (the) condition that

    (a)My parents let me make decisions by myself on the condition that I have to be responsible for the consequences.
    (b)My parents let me make decisions by myself on condition that I have to be responsible for the consequences.

    Is the article 'the' required? Is it wrong to use 'on the condition that'?

    Is the article 'the' required? i can't say that it's absolutely required, but it's usually used and it sounds better with "the".

    is it wrong to use 'on the condition that'? no
