1 I would be afraid that it would get hurt. OK I would need more context to be certain of this one. I looks fine on its own.

2 Why would she marry someone she cheated on with him? NOT SURE Why would she marry somene (that) she had cheated on.

3 I held back not playing for a long time just to crack 6 months later a relapse. NOT SURE ABOUT HELD BACK I don't understand this sentence.



4 It feels like this in't the life (that) I should be leading. OK

5 Does your parent think one of you is prettier than the other? OK OK but strange to say "your parent" > I would start with "Do your parents..." or "Does your mother / father ......"



6 Why move out of here to find a smaller place than here. OK Akward sentence. Why move out of here only to end up/to find yourself in a smaller place?



7 He looked at me in a way I knew he was in love with me. NOT SURE From the way he looked at me I knew that he was in love with me. (for example)

8 Take the money I spent on the furniture off the rent I owe you. OK I THINK OK

Thank you Louise,

For number one, here is more context.

1 If I gave my 3 month old something to eat, I'd be afraid/scared for him to choke/that he would choke on it, which is why I don't give him anything to eat other than milk.

3 I held back not playing for a long time just to crack 6 months later a relapse. NOT SURE ABOUT HELD BACK I don't understand this sentence.

What do you think of this?

Why would you hold back not playing poker (gambling) just to crack 6 months later. You shouldn't have stopped in the first place if you didn't have the willpower.

I held back not playing just to crack 6 months later. (recounting his story)

Thank you

OK

1. I would be afraid that he would get hurt / that he would choke.

3. To hold back on something is maybe not the right expression here. To hold back means not to do something . You have a double negative in that phrase.

Why would you hold back playing poker - does not sound quite right to me. If we are talking about an addict then you could use the word "resist".

Why would you resist playing poker just to crack 6 months later.

"Hold back" may well be used more in the USA.
