“When Two Sentences Fall In Love…”: Appropriate, Consensual Comma Usage vs. Unfortunate, Tragical Comma Abuse http://reasoningwithvampires.tumblr.com/tagged/comma_a buse Let’s talk about commas, baby. When two complete sentences fall in love and want to be united forever, they join one another with a comma (think of it like a wedding ring), and a conjunction (to continue the analogy)—like a priest, a rabbi, or a justice of the peace—marries them. In order for this comma to be present, they need to be fully committed and complete: at least two subjects and at least two verbs. Anything less than that is shameful comma overuse and abuse. Which one is correct? 1) I think my boyfriend is dreamy, and we are getting married. 2) I think my boyfriend is dreamy, and laugh at his jokes. Commas can be used in series or lists to indicate multiple subjects, objects, or verbs. In a standard series, commas are used for every item before the final conjunction/item. Which is correct?
