: Hi!

: An Englsih text book has a sentence below.

: "Mary will make John a fine wife."

: I think this is a strange sentence, but the book says it means 'Mary will be a fine wife to John.'

: I wonder if this sentence has such a meaning.

: Thanks for you answer.

: Tom
Yes, strange as it may seem, it is understood just that way.
