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