I?ve always believed, “despite” was only used in combination with objects and not with sentences… (despite this, …)
I thought the only way to use despite as a verbal conjunction was in the form “despite the fact that”.
But I found out this sentence on a website also providing TOEFL essay samples:
“Despite the society want us satisfy immediately our desires, I tend to avoid spending my money to use it later.”
Is this sentence correct?
