Hello, I need a grammatical correction in the following excerpt from my essay,
"We can see the benefits of having a husband for a woman in the following excerpt..."
My teacher circled the phrase "having a husband for a woman" (which means that there is something wrong with it) and I was wondering how could I correct it.
Thank You
