Well I have actually been the friend that over stayed. We were moving to another town and were trying to buy a house. We already had one picked out so we thought we would only be there about 6 weeks. Turns out the deal fell through and we had to start over from square one again and we ended up staying 6 months. We felt bad, and knew it was straining their family but they were nice to never kick us out, even though we knew they wanted to, we had no where to go. The part that was hard was the fact that it was a standard three bedroom house, with 10 people living in it. They are married with 3 kids (4 and 3 year old twins) we are married with 2 kids, (1, and 2) and they lived with his mother who needs care. His mother had the big master bedroom and bath to herself. The 5 kids shared a room. They gave their bedroom to us, and slept in the living room the whole time with no privacy. I regret it, but am very thankful!
