than I than I am The original: I am married to a woman blessed with far more intuitive kindness than I. My version: I am married to a woman blessed with far more intuitive kindness than I am. Can you feel any difference?

Hello, XiaoDeng: Both of the sentences are fine, in my opinion (American English). However, 'am' feels a bit unnecessary, and I would not be inclined to use it in that sentence. But, if someone did say it, I would not bat an eye.

Yes There Is A Difference But Doesn't make Either One " Wrong"

不加 am 的时候,我觉得用 me舒服一些,而不是 I : I am married to a woman taller than me. I am married to a woman taller than I am.
