a. He came up with that plan for his wife not to leave him.
b. He came up with that plan so that his wife would not leave him.

c. That was his plan for his wife not to leave him.
d. That was his plan so that his wife would not leave him.


Are all these sentences grammatically correct?

Do (a) and (b) mean the same?

Does (a) give the impression that the wife does not want to leave him and his plan is to help her stay with him?

Do (b) and (c) mean the same?

Many thanks.

Sorry, I don't think any of them make sense.
