Mensagem: 

Could anyone tell me if the grammatical construction of this sentence is correct?

 

"No one seemed to be morally constrained at the possibility of indulging themselves in pleasures bought with illegally acquired money."
= = = = =

  For starters, NO ONE is third person, so:

 -No one seems to be morally constrained when indulging him/herself in pleasures bought by illegal money.

 -No one seems to be morally compelled when indulging him/herself in pleasures bought by dirty money.

- No one seems to be morally restrainted at the thinking of enjoying  him/herself  with money of someone else/scams/taxpayers etc

 

 

 

Further views, opinions, examples  or comments from our peers will come.
