Hi Cher,http://spanishhelp.freeforums.org/viewtopic.php?f=4&t=1118Questions:1. Do you believe in this "not sharing your beliefs" reasoning behind using 'muriera'/subjunctive?2. With that said, what is the purpose of hiding your beliefs when telling someone a sentence like that?Steve

I think he was just trying to explain the meaning of the sentence, if you used muriera. But either way, I agree with you, that there is never a reason why someone would say that." 'El hecho de que' usually takes the subjunctive unless it is preceded by a preposition."Do you have an example?Thanks
You are clarifying that the preterite is used as opposed to the subjunctive?
Hi again, Steve.Yes, that's what I'm clarifying, due to 'por', a preposition, being used before 'el hecho de que'.Regards,Cher
