euretwegen

  1. because of you (2nd person plural), for your sake
    Das ist alles euretwegen passiert.
    All of this happened because of you.
  2. as far as you (2nd person plural) are concerned (you don't mind if); for all you care

Usage notes[edit]

Colloquially, this term is usually constructed with the separated form (especially in the southern language area), thus wegen euch instead of euretwegen. In sense 2, however, both are equally common in the vernacular.
