    instead of my boyfriend talking out his problem

    Hello everybody!

    Everytime we get into an argument, instead of my boyfriend talking out his problem with me he gives me the silent treatment.

    In my opinion, "my boyfriend" can be taken out of "instead of my boyfriend talking out his problem" and as a result we get "instead of talking out his problem".

    It goes without saying that "my boyfriend" is mentioned throughout the sentence, so there is no need to add any redundant information.

    What do you think?

    Thank you.

    If you take it out from there, you'll need to replace the 'he' with 'my boyfriend'. if you don't, we don't know who 'he' is.
