Alguem pode dizer-me se se utiliza "de" ou "para" com "desejo" neste contexto:

"his desire to possess her (his wife)"

Obrigada :)

    It's "de":
    Seu desejo de possuí-la (sua mulher/esposa)
    Please note that, in the Portugese version, the verb "possuir" in this specific construction, indicates inequivocally "to have sex with" (in a somewhat more euphemistic way, his desire to make love to her/take her to bed)

    Regards
