I have a few queries concerning conditional clauses.
Here is a sentence.
If she would have agreed I might have married her.(Hypothetical past)
In this sentence, what does the if- clasue ('If she would have agreed' ) denotes? Does it denote willingness(volition) of the person I wanted to marry?
What is the difference between the first sentence and this sentence?
If she had agreed I might have/would have married her.
The difference is that the second sentence is grammatically correct, not the first.
'would' is used in the hypothetical as in:
I would have married her if she had agreed.
If she had agreed, I would have married her in a shot(=without delay).
