Are the following sentences okay? How do we use "it's right time" if it's a valid expression?

a. "It's right time you killed him.” “I wouldn't like to do that somehow.”

b. Don't you think it's right time you found yourself a man?

c. I guess it's right time you wear other clothes besides that Catholic School girl uniform.

They all sound as if the expression should be "high time", an idiom meaning that the mentioned action is due or overdue.

I've never heard the expression "it's right time (that) X".

This "right time" means "about time". See about time.

If you say it is about time that something was done, you are saying in an emphatic way that it should happen or be done now, or really should have happened or been done sooner.

So for your examples, you could also write:

a. It's about time you killed him.

b. Don't you think it's about time you found yourself a man?

c. I guess it's about time you wore other clothes besides that Catholic school girl uniform.

  • Do you think the expression " "right time" in that use is idiomatic? Many native speakers haven't heard it before.
