Hi Alexander,

may/might can be expressed in different ways in Spanish. Most of the time we don't actually use modals. Here are some examples:

"He may come tonight":

1. A lo mejor viene esta noche. 2. Quizás venga esta noche. 3. Puede que venga esta noche.

"I might marry him."

1. A lo mejor me caso con él. 2. Quizás me case con él. 3. Puede que me case con él. 

We don't usually make a distinction between may and might.

Inma :))
