    Perfectly said.
    Respect is a two way street.
    And if they're staying there regularly, it obviously isn't a big an issue as you think it is.

    Though it was pretty funny when I went & stayed at my dads place when I'd lived with my DF for a year and I still felt SO awkward sharing a bed with him in my dads house we booked into a hotel first thing on the second morning!

    How bizarre!

    I never really thought of it this way. Good point Bada.

    O. M. G. That's REALLY bad!! I'd be very upset. For a once off I probably wouldn't say anything but if it was a reoccurring thing is ask DP to talk to her about it.

    Yep disrepectful and not even nessisary to boot. The Bf has his own place so it's beyond disrepectful when there is clearly an alternative to what they are doing!

    As for my DD's yikes! I don't even wanna think about it.
    Definititely NOT at 16 that's for sure!! 18 i suppose (and never under my roof).
    But i hate the idea of it at any age tbh

    So disrespectful! She needs to grow up and learn some respect for your parents. Her bf needs to start showing some respect to. By the sounds of it your parents need to get tougher on her (even though shes meant to be a adult).

    Yes totally disrespectful.

    No one should be made to feel uncomfortable in their own house!!

    I would probably let DS have someone stay over if he was in a long term relationship and her parents knew and were ok with it from 16-18 depending on both their maturity levels. DP may however have something to say about that!

    Very disrespectful. You don't go to someone's house and ignore their wishes. I would be telling her if it happens again, no more sleepovers.
