¿Ayudar a mi mejor amigo a ocupar su tiempo mientras su nueva esposa hace compras? Help my best friend occupy his time while his new wife goes shopping? I always thought the adjective and the noun are reverse in Spanish compared to English. How about the "major amigo" and the "nueva esposa"? Thanks.

Adjective/noun word order can actually be a bit tricky. For me, sometimes a certain order just sounds right (and, of course, other times I have no idea). I don't find memorizing rules to be very helpful, but you may find the following interesting: http://spanish.about.com/od/adjectives/a/adjectives_word_order.htm
