I just have a quick question for you all regarding a situation I'm facing right now. My husband's best friend and his fiancee are going to be traveling through town and have asked to stay at our house. We only have 3 bedrooms, so if DH and I are in one and the kids in the other, we only have one spare bedroom for this couple. I am uncomfortable with that situation. If we had two spare bedrooms, it wouldn't be a problem.
I worry about the example I am setting for my kids (2 and 4 years old) if I allow an unmarried couple to sleep in the same bedroom in my home. DH doesn't think they kids will "get" what's going on, but I think that kids are far more perceptive than many of us give them credit for. My husband says that this couple are living together already, and they are adults, so we should let them make their own decisions. I think it's different if we are allowing them to stay in our house. I told DH just to tell his friend that we don't have enough room, but my husband thinks that would be lying to them. I don't. We have two adults wanting to stay with us, and we do not have two bedrooms, so we don't have enough room.
What do you think? Is my explanation of "not having enough room" too close to a lie? And what else can I say to my husband about this? I was surprised that he actually got pretty angry at me for saying that I don't want to give them the same bedroom. I don't feel like I can just say that it's their decision to make and then give them one bedroom to share in my house... any thoughts?
