    Sentence wrong or right?

    NOT A TEACHER

    This sentence has been taken from a news website.

    "Saif says he had to be constantly conscious of the fact that it was the woman he loved; to whom, he was making love to on screen."

    I think this sentenc is wrong grammatically with two "to".
    COULD SOME TAECHER PLZ TELL ME WHETHER IT IS OR IS NOT THE CASE?

    THANKS!

    Yes, you are right the second 'to' is wrong. You can say either: '...to whom he was making love....' or '....who he was making love to...'

    Thanx! It confused me since I saw the same thing in one of my teacher's writing. I was certain he was wrong but when I saw the same thing again it occured to me that I could be wrong.
