To put my Dad and his partner in separate rooms when they come to stay with me?

After all, they are not married and surely it is a case of "Not under MY roof!!".

DF is 79 and his partner is 78.

AIBU? grin

You are kidding, right?

Kubalai Sun 21-Apr-13 21:49:28

Yanbu - your house, your rules grin

Haha no YANBU. Do it!

MousyMouse Sun 21-Apr-13 21:49:45

do you think this will stop them romping?

AnyFucker Sun 21-Apr-13 21:49:47


did your parents do that to you when you were a whipper snapper ?

in that case, YANBU grin

yes smile

YANBU and I would also tell them if they don't eat all their main, they won't get any pudding. You have to lay the law down, you know.

But please set up a video recorder for when you tell them grin

Keep popping in their room at regular (very regular) intervals with tea and biscuits
.... and make sure they keep the door open smile

grin I was living with my fiance (at the time - someone else's H now!) and we were not allowed to sleep together in my room.

So, seems that the wheel has turned and now, it is MY turn to say "My house, my rules!"

Mouseymouse, for god's sake, get real. This is my FATHER!! He only had sex 5 times with my mother - I had 4 sisters. He NEVER EVER EVER even tried it any other time so, no, there will be no romping in My House.

Sheshelob, yes, I am joking. But I so very, very tempted to tell them this. I know DF will get it, but not sure about his beloved, so best I just have a laugh to myself and let it be.

Chipping, I first read the bit about setting up a video recorder!! I nearly had to put my thoughts on a hot, bleach wash! Then I realised it was for when I tell them. Thank fuck for that.

I think you should give them a chance to earn your respect. Let them share but insist the door stays open.

MousyMouse Sun 21-Apr-13 21:56:10

yes of course, every sperm is sacred and all that wink

DontSHOUTTTTTT Sun 21-Apr-13 21:56:19

That is funny. You must at least tease him about it.

SirBoobAlot Sun 21-Apr-13 21:58:46

Please do this. And then post on MN immediately afterwards.

Alliwantisaroomsomewhere Sun 21-Apr-13 22:04:16

I will do so, and then report back! It will be in a few days, though. They will not be here for another 4 days.

PlasticLentilWeaver Sun 21-Apr-13 22:28:09

I would be sooo tempted by this. In fact, do it, please do it.

I'm 40 and still haven't had sex with DH under my parents roof, after 10 years of marriage.

Do it, do it for me. And my ongoing repression!

BlackeyedSusan Sun 21-Apr-13 22:32:32

you also must tell him off for leaving lights on/banging cupboad doors/leaving doos open/wasting hot water/leaving the fridge open while he gets something out*

delete as appropiate.

Also tell them that the floorboards in the hallway creak so you'll know if there is any sneaking around in the night. My DM and Stepdad would think it hilarious if I'd told them that in the time before they were married (both in their 60's when married).

MoaneyMcmoanmoan Mon 22-Apr-13 07:03:47

Yes and make sure you give him a curfew if he pops out anywhere.

Mrsdavidcaruso Mon 22-Apr-13 07:31:18

Also make sure if they do 'romp' they have protection you do NOT want a little brother or sister in 9 months time

Alliwantisaroomsomewhere Mon 22-Apr-13 20:27:42

Blackeyedsusan, I reckon we have the same father!! I could not walk out of a room for a minute without being sent back to switch the light off.

Funny, though... I will call DS from downstairs if he has left his light on!!

meditrina Mon 22-Apr-13 20:35:45

You put them in separate rooms, and ignore any corridor creeping.

It'll heighten their pleasure.

Just strip the house of vaseline, moisturiser, olive oil, sunflower oil, axle grease. Without lube they're fucked. Or, er, not perhaps.
