    Smile My trouble is that I have no money.

    My trouble is that I have no money.



    Is the conjunction "that" optional? If not, why not? Thanks.

    "That" is optional, usually included in written English and often left out in speaking English

    "that" is optional, but the sentence sounds better to me with "that".
