Consider somebody, a woman, is going to get married soon.

They were tumultuous days and she had eclectic emotions lately about will having leave her family and the city where she has been living all her life.

( I know .."will having leave her family.." part is probably grammatically wrong but I could not join the sentences properly.I mean here " she will have to leave and knows that")

  • In your example sentence, the "days" are plural, so it's "They were tumultuous days". – Stephen Dunscombe Feb 6 '15 at 19:15

    You wouldn't describe emotions as "eclectic". If your point is that she's feeling very emotional, you might use "wild" or "chaotic". If your point is that she feels both good and bad about leaving, you would says she has "mixed emotions". – Stephen Dunscombe Feb 6 '15 at 19:16
  • For the bit about "will having leave", what do you mean by "having"? Are you using it to construct a past tense? ("She has left.") Or are you using it to describe an obligation? ("She has to leave.") – Stephen Dunscombe Feb 6 '15 at 19:17
  • Also, I think you mean "metaphorical", not "metamorphic". – Stephen Dunscombe Feb 6 '15 at 19:17
  • @StephenDunscombe I used the word 'having' to describe an 'obligation' – Mrt Feb 6 '15 at 19:18

"Tumultuous" can be used to refer to personal disturbance as well as social disturbance. If someone is having a stressful and chaotic time, they might well call it a "tumultuous" time.
