If family members (who you LOVE) come to visit from out of state- for 3 or 4 days, but stay for 3 week's and 4 days....is that rude?

I love my family and I have no regrets, I'm just wondering the opinion of others. Honesty, I would'nt change a thing....though it has been a little crowded, lol. (me and hubby have 4 kids)

  • I think it would be rude, in most cases. But if it were my family, they would know I would love them to stay, so I wouldn't personally think it was rude....but I"m sure my dh would! lol

  • I would be overwhelmed but at the same time I would think they must live my company! That why they want to stay!

  • While I am flattered that they liked it here so much to stay that long- my husband was getting a little irritated- from the lack of privacy, lol. IKD, now that they're gone, I do actually miss them, even though it has been a long 3 weeks and 4 days, lol.

  • wait i read wrong i thought it said a week and 4 days not 3. yes i'd probably consider it rude however its still family and i wouldn't kick them out. they would drive me crazy no matter if it was my family or his, but its still family and they would let us stay that long if need be.

  • Yeah, thats rude. Unless you talked about it beforehand its inconsiderate. What if you didn't have the money to buy groceries for extra people for that long of visit?
