Welcome to another “English expressions” post. Here we want to focus on specific expressions that are used very, very often in the English speaking world.
It means that if someone wrongs you, it won’t make anything better for you to wrong them back. You would still be doing something wrong.
“I know your brother hit you, but don’t hit back. You know two wrongs don’t make a right”
“James was very rude to Anna so Anna was rude to James. I understand her, but two wrongs don’t make a right”
“Just forgive her… she didn’t mean to shout and if you don’t invite her to your party it will make everything worse. Remember: two wrongs don’t make a right”
