SO mumsnet emailed me and told me because I havnt answered any comments on the 1st thread people thought I was a troll.
I am most certainly not, reason why didn't reply was....
I'd written it just before I'd gone to bed, because i thought when I get up it will of maybe had some replies. Nothing else.

So fri night son comes in early hours(I half heard him)
Thought it the night I kept hearing the bathroom door being closed.
I thought he'd eaten one thing and had diarrhoea!!
So was in and out of sleep most of the night.

I woke up to hear him going down about 10ish and saying "going to get something to ear"

Partner came up to bring me coffee(he'd been up early)
So I said what the hell was all that noise with the doors last night.
He said you don't know, ..... bought a girl home, I've not slept all night with the noise and them talking and s..... till 5 ish

Well I was livid, he said he'd never do this although most of his mates do and I said no you won't.
When he came back, I went mad at him, told him he's no respect for us and if he want to do that go get a hotel room. It's our house not his and his room is still in our house.

Am I old fashioned (60)

Like everyone else said, he's 27. This is why 27 year olds shouldn't live with their parents.

And yes, you are old fashioned.

Yes, your old fashioned

Queenofthestress Sun 09-Jul-17 18:01:52

Yes, yes you are.
He's 27. He is an adult. He is going to bring girls home unless you want him to never settle down and move out.

Are you married to your "partner", OP?

Mammylamb Sun 09-Jul-17 18:02:54

Yes you are old fashioned

He's 27! Where do you expect him to have the bushes? He either has sex in your house or you make him move out. Expecting him to live in your house as an adult but not be able to behave like an adult is very unfair.

Oh not again. Yes, you're old fashioned. You're the same age as my parents and they are not 'old fashioned', you're age isn't an excuse.

NoLoveofMine Sun 09-Jul-17 18:03:10

I highly doubt a 27 year old male is bringing a "girl" home.

Fairylea Sun 09-Jul-17 18:03:10

You are being old fashioned. But - your house your rules. If he wants to bring women home and you say no he needs to respect that and get his own place.

BigDamnHero Sun 09-Jul-17 18:03:15

I didn't bother to reply on the other thread because there were already tonnes of comments but of course YABU.

He's 27!! He's a grown man.

My parents were fine with my BF sleeping in my room when I was 16 because I was of legal age and they didn't think my sex life was any of their business.

Alisvolatpropiis Sun 09-Jul-17 18:03:20

Yes, you are very old fashioned.

DotForShort Sun 09-Jul-17 18:03:26

Oh, boy. hmm

Does your son pay rent to live with you?

fluffiphlox Sun 09-Jul-17 18:04:24

Not only old-fashioned but you've made yourself sound a bit bonkers. (I am pushing 60.)

crazycatgal Sun 09-Jul-17 18:04:25

He's a 27 year old man...

Ameliablue Sun 09-Jul-17 18:04:50

If he's contributing to the household as an adult he should be able to bring a girlfriend home. If you don't agree, I guess it is time he moves out.

MudGolum Sun 09-Jul-17 18:04:55

He's not even married ffs. Get him in line.

He'll be living with you forever.

nina2b Sun 09-Jul-17 18:05:48

The poor guy is 27. Of course you are unreasonable. You really have to ask?

RortyCrankle Sun 09-Jul-17 18:05:57

I'm in my 70s and yes you're old fashioned. He's 27, not 7. However, your house your rules. Then it's up to your DS if he wishes to continue living with you or do what most 27 year olds do and find somewhere else to live, either rent somewhere or a flatshare.

sparechange Sun 09-Jul-17 18:06:29

Yes, you're old fashioned and quite horrible to him

What on earth has his social/love life got to do with respect for you?

He brought someone home. He hasn't trashed your house and stolen from you!

DH was 30 when we first started dating and lived with his 60yo parents. We didn't share a room there until we were married. Their house, their rules.
