Hi. Could you help me with this sentence, please?

"These girls are made to neither be loved nor undertood".

Is the use of neither nor correct?

Thank you in advance!

It is correct English with the typo fixed, but the meaning seems unusual. More context would be helpful.

It may be considered correct, but I can't say that I like it much at all. I think you should change it thus:

... made neither to be loved nor to be understood.

I'll assume you know it doesn't have the same meaning as the Wilde quote.

It's based on Oscar Wilde's quote: "Women are made to be loved, not understood".
