Take work?

Postby pdh0224 » Thu Sep 23, 2004 4:07 am

Dear teacher,

Marriage is difficult and it takes work to make it succeed.

Q : What does "takes work" mean? Is it an idiom? I have not

seen the word before. I can't find it in a dictionary.

What do you think?

All the best, :)

'Take' here means 'require'.
