I am wondering if the expression "gambling in relationship" is idiomatic. By that, I mean "go into a relationship that has very little chance of lasting a long time."

Here's an example:

Dating a girl who hates people who are timid like me is gambling in relationship.


Actually the idiomatic phrase is to take a gamble. Example: He's taking a gamble dating that woman, he's not her type.

  • Or gambling with the relationship, if you want a normal sounding sentence that isn't an actual idiom. – Jason Bassford Supports Monica May 9 '19 at 20:43
  • @JasonBassford normal sounding? You can use that but it seems it would be lot more awkward in sentence structure. – Karen927 May 9 '19 at 22:50
