I have read in http://portlandenglish.edu/blog/how-to-use-being-and-having-as-gerunds/ about the use of "having".
The website describes as follows:
- Having a big house costs a lot of money. [ Having a big house = subject]
- Many people dream about having a big house. [ Having a big house = object of a preposition]
- His dream is having a big house. [ Having a big house = subject complement]
Again, we are talking about this situation or condition of having a big house. To make it negative, just add “not” in front of the gerund.
Not having servants would be difficult if your house were so big!
Having too much work stresses him out.
He hates having too much work.
Not having too much work would make him so much happier!
"Having' always Implies or refers to 'possession' If we use "having" as a gerund where “having” can act as the subject or object in a sentence?
