    Had you shared with them before preg though? Sharing with friends can make or break friendships, we found that one out last year lol.

    I tried it.

    I'll keep it brief, but apart from the fact I could actually afford rent and whatnot, my issues were:

    *Other people telling you how to raise your kid (even though they're not parents)
    *Other people trying to raise your child even though you're right there
    *Other people complaining about things your kid does
    *Them doing things around your child that you're not really comfortable with
    *Them bringing friends over... that you don't know... and you not knowing if they're safe people to have around your kids
    *Them deciding to be young and carefree. It's a bit annoying when your child has a bedtime, you don't want drunk fools around your kid, etc. Even making house rules prior to moving in didn't really mean anything once we actually moved in. These were long-term friends prior to moving in together.
    *Them doing "bad" things to your kid (not like, criminal or dangerous bad, just bad habits bad) for their own amusement... because it's fun.

    That's how I found it anyway. I couldn't handle it. Maybe it would be okay to do with another single mother who is pretty laid-back in her opinion about parenting... but I mean, I don't think it's very easy otherwise.

    Cmf i think it's a huge difference when you're not serial house sharers, and especially when you haven't shared with those people before

    Spent from my dome. Excuse autocorrect

    Yeah probably. But it's enough to have put me off ever sharing a house again!

    Haha yeah before I found out I was preg I was so keen to leave this place and not share anymore, but the problem people are moving out of this house and I don't particularly want to leave anyway so I think things have worked out pretty well in my case.
