Divorce Them

People really do try, but it’s amazing what awful grammar they produce when they think they are getting it right. I even hear this error from cable newscasters , and especially from sportscasters.

   “Ms. Grant gave he and she a nice wedding gift.”

Cringe!!!!  The only way to prove how to fix this is to split up the happy couple.

   “Ms. Grant gave him a nice wedding gift.”

   “Ms. Grant gave her a nice wedding gift.”

 “Ms. Grant gave him and her a nice wedding gift.”

Split up the pair or risk a grammar infidelity.
