Mary will make John a fine wife.

Posted by Tom on February 22, 2004


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.
