Mum bans daughter, 23, from sharing bed with boyfriend when bringing him home

A mum has caused quite a stir after revealing she doesn't want her daughter, 23, to share a bed with her boyfriend at her home.

The parent said that her husband was uncomfortable with them sharing a bed and they've imposed the same rule before.

Despite liking her daughter's partner, the couple would prefer for them to sleep alone until they're married.

Sharing her parenting dilemma on Mumsnet, she said: "We have our daughter and her boyfriend coming tomorrow for Christmas.

She added: "We've met the boyfriend once over lunch, and he is lovely.

"[My husband] wants them to sleep in separate rooms.

"Now obviously when they are in their own city they must share a bed as they stay over at each other's places."

The mum added that she's imposed the rule before when her daughter was 21 and brought her then-boyfriend home.

She continued: "Our parents agree as they were not married, but did say things seem very different today."

It's no surprise that the post divided Mumsnet users as many thought they should be allowed to share a bed.

One wrote: "I would let them share a room if they are in a serious enough relationship to be spending Christmas with family."

Another added: "I think it would be ridiculous to make them sleep in different rooms."

Others felt that it was important for the family to be comfortable, so agreed it would be fine.

One Mumsnet user said: "I think it's fair enough, to be honest.

"If you made your daughter sleep separately from her boyfriend then I'd say you have to treat your son the same."
