"My boyfriend designs clothing."
Translation:Il mio fidanzato disegna abiti.
why isn't the article needed for vestiti? i included it and was marked wrong?
Unless it's a specific family member, you need it. http://www.italianlanguageguide.com/italian/grammar/possessive-adjective.asp
Thanks. So what is a husband or wife? Not a specific family member? :) That page does clarify that. And we can have multiple brothers and sisters, does it make a difference?
The singular family nouns are an exception and there is no definite article (padre, madre, moglie, marito, fratello, zio, cugino, ...)
Whereas in the plural the definite article is necessary (fratelli, cugini, ...)
