I like the way you approached this all 2x3x29x41.

We would not have laid out the welcome mat for the girlfriends of our three boys, but it happened, under our roof, and we didn't make a big deal out of it. The girlfriend of our eldest walked out of his bedroom one morning and poured a cup of coffee. He was 19, she was 17, and had come in through his bedroom window. I did say he wasn't setting a great example for his younger brothers. Once the younger two were in college, they were welcome to bring home whoever they were dating. The guest room was always ready, and offered, it was never used.

Of course that viewpoint may be jaded having "lived in sin" before getting married and being allowed to "sleep over" in my GF's (wife of 22 years now) room.
And have them miss out on the memories of that night at the lake? Or laughing about the time in the car?

It hasn't been an issue yet, but if my over-18 adult child came home with an over-18 significant other, then I wouldn't have a problem with it. If either is under 18 (the age of consent in my state) or if it was just some random dude/gal they met at a bar an hour prior, then no.

Depends on age. If they’re older and pushing 50, then no. And yes, I knew a guy who was still pure at that age. He was one of those conservative Christians. If he wasn’t such an uptight prude, we probably still be together. I don’t know how any normal guy can be almost 50 and never having sex.

I don’t have kids. Even if I did, I wouldn’t care as long as both parties were over 18. I would think most adult children would be too embarrassed to even have sex in their parent’s home.
