The sentence is— "Her and James' life shouldn't be a topic of discussion for them." I believe that it should be she and James' and not her James'. Which version of the sentence is correct? Please help me out, thank you.

    You wouldn't say "She life shouldn't be a topic of discussion", would you? Apr 12, 2021 at 9:05

    If their lives are considered separately, then hers and James' lives - if their shared life (e.g. as a couple) then her and James' life - or avoid the problem altogether by placing the name first John's and her life/lives Apr 12, 2021 at 9:27

    Does this answer your question? Which is correct in this sentence: "me and my" or "my and my"?

  • Her and James' life together ended when they got divorced; hers and James' lives were saved when they were rescued from a sinking ship; - or - James' and her life together ended when they got divorced; James' and her lives were saved when they were rescued from a sinking ship.

The correct form is "Her and James' life shouldn't be a topic of discussion for them". It's "Her life" not "She life".
