Fuck nay. When my parents had friends over they slept on the spare mattress or the couch and they appreciated it.

Depends on who it is. We typically don't have guests from out of town. My girls would likely happily give up their room though.

Nope I wouldn't do that. I have a 2 bedroom apt. My bf friend and his girl at the time with her daughter came to stay for the weekend. I def did not gave up my room or my son's room. We had them sleep in the living room with a air mattress. When my FBIL used to sleep here he would sleep in my son's room in the floor or in the livingroom.

When they're older if we were to have out of town family then yes. Now, no and we don't have any anyways that would stay here. For someone to stay here, it would have to be a sibling of ours, but right now, they're all here. My out of town aunts and uncles would rather stay with their siblings, aka my other aunts and uncles.

No way. If out of town guests are unable to stay in a hotel then they can sleep wherever I have room. No one in my family will be put out of their space because of family that won't stay somewhere there is room.
