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". Feb 6, 2015 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". Feb 6, 2015 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.") Feb 6, 2015 at 19:17
  • Also, I think you mean "metaphorical", not "metamorphic". Feb 6, 2015 at 19:17
  • @StephenDunscombe I used the word 'having' to describe an 'obligation'

"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.
