Help(please..) Hi, there Please, could you help me? When I have two subjects, how should I arrange a sentence with "better"? Could you say? "It is better that he gets grounded than fail/fails a grade(or FAIL SCHOOL?? Or REPEAT A GRADE?) ..........////////And "It is better that she breaks up with him than HIM LOSING his job" or "It is better that she breaks up with him than HE LOSE his job"?... What would you personally say? Please

Grammatically, I think the left side of the "than" and the right side should be consistent. It is better that HE getS grounded than HE failS a grade. It is better that SHE breakS up with him than HE loseS his job. For example, you can say instead: Her breaking up with him is better than him losing his job. See how it is consistent on the left and right?
