Hi there. I'm slightly stuck on the whole concept of possession. Take the following for example:

The incident would forever remain in John and Mary's minds.

I'm not sure if the underlined part of that sentence is correct. If anyone knows the right way to write it, or if it's fine as is, then please tell me. Emotion: stick out tongue

Thanks.

Hello

I'd go with "The incident would forever remain in John's and Mary's minds."

The rules are as follows:



  • John and Mary's house : John and Mary live in the same house.



  • John and Mary's rooms.: John and Mary share some rooms.



  • John's and Mary's toothbrushes : John and Mary each have their own toothbrush(es).

I would prefer "in the minds of John and Mary".
