Student or Learner
I read a dialogue below and don't understand some parts of it. Could you help me? Many thanks.
A: That seems like a good idea, but it won't solve the problem of Terry leaving. He's leaving because of family problems.
B: There isn't much you can do about him leaving then. But...
I dont understand why leaving is OK there. Are they some kind of simplified sentences?

If I dont use the participles, what the possible sentences could be?

The problem is not Terry, it is his leaving.
My wife does not hate me.
She hates me snoring.
I see. Can I say that:
"That seems like a good idea, but it won't solve the problem of Terry Whose leaving."
"There isn't much you can do about him whose leaving then."
Why do you want to insert words?
