In separate beds, just like they made me do with my BF when we were not engaged, even as a grown ass woman! (she said with a giggle)

Yes, it is normal for them to sllep in a bed together because they are a couple.  They are your guests, either buy a matress or sleep on the couch.

When we didn’t have a guest bed, we let my parents sleep in our bed and we slept on a blow up mattress. If it’s same age friends, then they got the blow up mattress or the couch, but for older people, I think it’s nice for them to have a real bed so they don’t wake up in pain. If you can’t get a blow up mattress, I would just sleep on the couch for the one night or make a bed on the floor by piling up some blankets.

And maybe find a good air mattress to have on hand for the future?  They make some pretty good ones these days.

veleniza :  amaon a blow up bed – it’s like $20, and you could get overnight shipping for another $20 if you need it asap….by the sound of it, you could probably use having a decent guest bed around anyway (they’re *very* useful), so i would consider it a worthwhile investment

Is it a sleeper couch?

Hotel, an air mattress, or the BF sleeps on the couch. You should not be kicked out of your own bed, and if you are uncomfortable with him sleeping in  your bed, that’s good enough reason for him not to.

Just talk to your mother.

I think your moms s boyfriend should get a hotel room. Mom knows the situation. I would never expect my kid to give up their bed. At their age I would think the could afford it.

If Mum ever gave you a rough time about having a boyfriend sleep with you in her house, or forbade it, then I would forbid it in your house. Ask her where her boyfriend is going to sleep. If she says with her, say I think not, you aren’t married.

Paybacks are a bitch, Mum.

When I lived in a condo and didn’t have a guest room I would offer to sleep on the sofa when my parents came to visit. I did it out of respect but also practicality- unless you have a sleeper sofa or an enormous sectional, two people generally can’t sleep on it. 

You could share the bed with your mom & put her boyfriend on the sofa. I personally sleep horribly if I am sharing a bed with anyone other than my fiancé. (It took time to adapt to sleeping with him.) The sofa may not be super comfortable, but I would sleep better there than next to my mom or anyone else I’m not used to sharing a bed with- tossing and turning, breathing loudly, snoring, etc. 

If the issue is more so that you are grossed out by someone else sleeping in your bed, I’d suggest investing in some guest bedding and a mattress cover. Mattress covers are great to have any way.
