A reader from Pasco Washington asks:
Do I need a comma in this sentence?
Therefore not wanting to purchase it and have to battele with the assembly process.
Normally you would put a comma before “therefore,”–however, this is not a sentence–it is a sentence fragment. Even if you had something before “therefore”, you would need a subect to make it a complete sentence. I’m making up some parts to fix the sentence, I hope you can see where it changes:
The instructions are too complicated for this product, therefore I don’t want to purchase it and have to battle with the assembly process.
