Rule is no overnight guests of the romantic type. My girl 18, has recently come out (not necessarily gay..not in any of the categories, as she's said) and wants to have gf hang out with our family, have dinner, all of us play a board game, and have her sleep on the couch. Daughter will sleep in her own room. She knows better than to pull anything.
She's struggling with the fact that we haven't really gotten to know her gf very well since she lives over an hour away. This will be the last visit until gf leaves for college. She's a very nice girl.
We are obviously more strict that her parents and aren't thrilled, but understand our dd needs us to accept this as her first same sex relationship, and to know her gf. We've said we are fine with whoever you choose to date as long as you're happy/healthy. Our DD happens to be a complicated/challenging person in many ways.
We have a younger one at home as well. He's doesn't challenge us at all.
Go with the flow? Maybe this once?
