My wife is having a friend stay over with us at the end of the month for a visit. The friend asked if she could bring her new (~2 months) boyfriend along as well. We are not comfortable with this for multiple reasons. In order of importance to us:
- We have never met this guy before, and we aren’t comfortable with him sleeping in the room next to our two year old.
- My wife feels that it would be more entertaining and less catching up with her friend.
- They may opt (or request) to sleep in the same room together, something that we aren’t comfortable with in our house.
I told my wife that she needs to be honest with her friend, but she is worried about her friend interpreting this as not trusting her judgement in men, which isn’t the case. How does my wife explain that we would prefer that her friend not bring her boyfriend on an overnight trip to our house, without (or minimally) damaging the relationship?
Additional context: it would be one night spent at our house. My wife is also in the 8th month of pregnancy, which the friend knows about.
