Re: Re: OT Question: Hyphenated words
*Dollar* 500 GPs were sent to Max Griffin 🏳️‍🌈 with this post.
"In Pennsylvania, there is a three-month waiting period during,,," could be changed to "In Pennsylvania, there is a waiting period lasting three months ..." -- no hyphen

"We have to prove it was a one-time thing. ..." could be "We have to prove it is going to happen only one time ..." -- no hyphen.

I guess I'm asking if I can not use a hyphen is it preferable in today's writing?
