for her to want to talk about it

Ask him what he said to Jane at the party last night.
-He won't be able to answer. He was too drunk to remember.

He is not drunk now. He was so drunk last night that he has surely forgotten all he did and said and won't be able to recall what he said to Jane.

Does the sentence in blue work in this context?

a. Her relationship with her husband was too bad for her to want to talk about him.


Is sentence (a) grammatically correct?

Many thanks.

They are both good in the contexts you give.
