    have the money

    Dear teachers,
    Which form is correct?
    'to have money' or 'to have the money'

    I'll give the sentence:
    I gave him my wallet so that he had money to drink.

    Thank you in advance. I'll be really grateful for your kind help.

    Re: have the money

    Both are correct. With the article, the expectation is about a more precise amount.

    Thanks a lot,
    I'll use the version without 'the' then:)
