craigslistgirl:  when it comes to “liking” their friends – ehh I wasn’t really that fond of some of my FI’s either but I put a smile on just to make him Happy. LIVING with us would be a totally different story. You can put your foot down on that one. Just so long as you abide by the same rules for your friends!

craigslistgirl:  what does he mean by “crash?” Like, crash on the couch for a night after drinking so he doesn’t have to drive home, or crash for days or a week at a time for the hell of it?

If it’s the former, then I’m not sure why it would be a big deal as long as it’s sporatic. If his morals are questionable and he wants to stay with you guys because he’s not responsible enough to secure and hold down his own living arrangements, then I would not want him to crash…that’s an open ended invitation to getting taken advantage of.

I can’t fathom any of my DH’s friends asking to “crash” at our house. But thankfully they are all at the point where they have wives and kids and appoint a designated driver before they go out.

craigslistgirl:  polyblonde:  one of my FI’s “less than savoury friends” crashed on my sofa when he was drunk. Once. And he pissed himself. Now, nobody crashes here, hahaha!

We’re in our 40’s – the crashing phase ended long ago. That’s what cabs are for! I don’t like having people in our tiny condo – it’s too crowded with more than 2 people.

craigslistgirl:  My dh’s friends have never crashed at our place. He does have some I’m not the biggest fan of but I kill them with kindness

craigslistgirl:  Maybe I’m just hospitable but I’m fine with any of our friends crashing for a night for whatever reason.  We live in an area where most of the entertainment is so I typically offer if I know my friends are out drinking – or we’re out with them.

Now “crashing” for an extended period of time?  Hell no.
