ERROR! ERROR!

0

The following text is considered an  issue by Grammarly. I complied with the two contradicting suggestions of removing and adding the comma.  What can I do to correct my sentence should there be any error and break the cycle?

She then came to accept that no one can be perfect, and that women can be mothers to each other.

No comma should be used. 'Came to accept' means the same thing as 'accepted', so I read this as a compound direct object made up of two dependent clauses starting with 'that'.   The software is probably reading it incorrectly and seeing this as a compound sentence requiring a comma. I would say ignore the flag.
