I don’t want to share my room with my parents nor do I want to share theirs. Yup, couldn’t do it!

From the title, I thought you meant offering your bedroom to visiting parents while you sleep somewhere else. I wouldn’t have an issue with that but I would be uncomfortable actually sharing a bedroom with my parents (and extremely uncomfortable with in-laws!)

Oh. Hell. No. That would never happen.

That would be super weird for me. I have shared hotel rooms with my parents and my future inlaws, but never our room. So so weird!

Really awkward…kind of cruel (or just oblivious!)of him to ask you in front of others! But hey, now you’ve crossed that barrier 😉

If it’s not a long term thing, I wouldn’t give it a second thought.  Annoying, yes, but not worth stressing over.  A couple of days, I could handle.  More than that?  I probably would fuss (but then again, so would my FMIL!)

That would weird me out, the only time I would ever give up our bedroom for a guest would be if they had some kind of back problem and couldn’t afford a hotel room.

@lilchicana:  We had to share a hotel room with my grandmother recently that had two queen beds in it. It was a little weird at first but we all slept fine. We are around each other every day and generally comfortable around each other.

I wouldn’t feel comfortable with our family sleeping in the same bed with us though.

No way would I let that happen our bedroom is just that our’s.  

Well done to you being a great host I’m not sure how I would have handled it.

@lilchicana:  We don’t share but I do offer our king sized bed over the guest room’s queen. Thankfully my parents have never taken me up on the offer.

We’ve offered our actual room to my parents – they always decline.  His dad, I woouldn’t offer (not the greatest relationship), his mom I’d make the same offer if it ever came up (she lives nearby).

In the same room…no, except for special circumstances (say all together on vacation, but even now I’d pay the money for a real hotel room, or maybe all over at a house for a funeral or something).  That’s too uncomfortable.
