    You really need to add some context. – user85526 Aug 2 '14 at 18:33

    "I will have to share her" means just that, word for word. Every word can be looked up in a dictionary of your choice. It can be a bilingual dictionary, too. You can translate the sentence word for word into your native tongue and that will be the exact meaning of the sentence in English. – RegDwigнt Aug 2 '14 at 18:50

Firstly, what is the context ? What do you mean by her ? Is it a real woman or a doll ? I'll assume that you meant woman.

Secondly, the way this sentence is written, it can sound offensive to the woman in question or to others too. Sharing a woman can have a sexual connotation. Unless you meant it that way, please avoid using the sentence as is.

I think the sentence means that the woman will not be able to help you or work with you because she now has to help another person as well. So, you can rephrase it like this -

Now, I will not get all of her attention or time or Now I will get less of her time or attention.

EDIT - Now that you added the context, you can say it like this - Now that she is married, I won't get to spend much time with her.

Eg. Small sister : Now that my big sister is getting married, I won't get to spend much time with her. I will miss her very much.

  • Thanks. I think the writer wants to convey that when her friend gets married she'll not get much of her friend time and now she'll share that time with another friend. That's why writer says "Now I will have to share her with another person" – Shifu Aug 2 '14 at 18:47
