You know, I was just thinking of the same comparison this morning - so apt. I'm guessing most would be appalled by that, though expect that most would accept parents not allowing a same sex couple to sleep together in the home if it made the parents uncomfortable. All just reflections of where we are at, in terms of acceptance as a society, which quite frankly blows me away.What if they said they couldn't sleep together because they were mixed race (as an example). Would everyone still be saying their house their rules? They are building a house together so there is commitment.
OP it's not a matter of disciplining her, they just need to ask her to leave. If they don't, then it's clearly not that big a problem to them.
once DD is an adult and as long as its not randoms from the pub and her bedroom is at the other end of the house, then maybe
I dont know how i feel about it im a bit bias i think.
My grand parents wouldnt let DH and I share a bed at their house before we were married. Not after years of dating, buying a couple of houses, having DD!! Not until we were officially married with that piece of paper as proof would they let us share a bed.
Yes their house and their rules, but personally i felt rediculos sleeping down the hall from my daughters father. so weve never stayed their since (even though we are married now, i still wish we just left and got a hotel room)
At the end of the day the parents can kick her out. They haven't, so really, why do you care so much OP?
My father was always strict on the rule no boy can sleep over. I had my now husband over only when I had the house to myself and always asked dad because I was scared to be alone in the house at night. My father even once we were engaged would make my dh sleep on the couch!
But BOTH my younger and older sisters threw hissys till he gave in. Which made me SO mad as we never ever broke the rules out of respect!
My parents were pretty easy going, with my brother but where i was concerned it was a different story...
I was 18 when i had my first serious relationship and kicked up a stink because my 16 year old brother had girls coming and going and staying over...Mum's view was that it is different for boys as they can't get into trouble... AT BF's house we slept in seperate rooms but his parents knew that he snuck into my room and never said anything about it. and we respected their decision to put us in seperate rooms...
With DH and I he stayed from the beginning of our relationship mum never said anything cause i could always come back with the fact my brother and his 15 year old at that stage GF were living there and i was 21 DH was 18 DH and i moved out after 8 months into our own place and haven't lived at home since....
With our kids i think 16 depending on their maturity level and wether or not they are emotionally ready for s3xual relationships.
I think your sister is being totally disrespectful,she knows your parents rules and is ignoring them BUT your parent are allowing them too.
