I saw this unfamiliar idiom 'marry something with' when I was searching about the words 'combining' and 'associating' on Google. While writing my english self introduction, I really wanted to find more appropriate word in the context.
Here's a link. In the site, it's said:
4 [transitive] (also marry up) formal to combine two different ideas, designs, tastes etc together
marry something with/to something
The building’s design marries a traditional style with modern materials.
marry something and something
He writes fiction that marries up realism and the supernatural.
Is it often used in America and am I ok to use this idiom like this sentence?
'I can be creative and think about new cities while marrying my humane? and artistic imagination with various disciplines such as urban planning.'
My self introduction is based on my dream (Urban planning). My interests are liberal arts and urban planning. P.S: I love fancy words and phrases. Plus, can anyone advise any kinds of dictom or maxim and what is the difference between 'apparatus' and 'brainchild'?
Please give me advice and correct my sentence:) Also, give me examples with details. I would be really thankful. :)
