Dating 2 years and staying the night with SO

My friend has a boy and he has girl. Do you think its ok to stay the night if the kids are in separate rooms?

My mom did it with us as kids, so I told her it was ok. But her other friend says its against the law? Is that true?

  • Why would it be against the law?

  • i dont think its against the law could be against his custody agreement that he have no over night female visitors if its not a serious relationship but in my opinion its ok as long as the children are aware of you and dont see any sexual stuff, because i would think a 2 year relationship is a serious one correct?

  • That's not aganist the law well at least in Ohio it isn't. It is for them to be in the same room if they are of a certain age though. I think its completely fine if they sleep in seperate rooms.

  • I said it was not against the law. She said the SO ex is going to throw a fit.

  • I don't think it's against the law, but I do think it sets a bad example for the kids by staying the night with someone you aren't married to. My husband never stayed overnight with me when my kids were home before we married.

  • its not against the law, but she does have a point on the ex having a fit. she might have an order staying he can't have overnight guests while he has his son. so i would be careful with that.

  • If u have been 2gether for 2 years, that sounds like a long term monogamous relationship to me.. u arent just some tramp he brought home for the night. he is aloud to "move on" from ex wife, and she has no control of that.
