How to convince parents to allow me to sleep over boyfriend's house?

been dating him 2-3 months, he met my parents and my parents liked him. However they are strict about time and do no let me sleep over his place as well. I really want to though and I'd be sad if I can. I'm 24

Updates:

  • Hopefully you meant to type in that you are 14, because if you are 24 then you need serious psychological help to get you out of the house.
    But what you do is tell your parents that you are going to stay the night at your friend's house (a girl who your parents like and have let you stay over before), and go to her house, then go to your BF's house and have your friend cover for you in case your mum calls. How to avoid your BF's parents is for both of you to sleep over a friends house who's parents are out of town or won't come upstairs, and do not mention to your parents that your BF is there.

  • What's there to convince you're 24 years old! What's the worse they could do if you did? Just because you live with your parents still doesn't mean they determine who's house you can stay over, you're not a child anymore. The only people who can say you can't sleep over is his own parents (if he still lives with them).

  • If you're over 18 your parents don't officially have jurisdiction over you...

    Of course if you want to respect them and keep a good relationship with them, the answer is simple, don't sleep over at his house.

    • Tell them your girlfriend just went through a real tough breakup and you are sleeping at her place for a day to make sure she's okay!

    • Hope this helps!

  • Your parents think all you're going to do is have sex all night. And there prolly right. They fear u getting prego and still living with them. If u guys really want to sleep over save some $$$ get a small apt together

    • Just do it whats the worst that could happen? They will be mad? They are your parents they won't stay mad forever.

    • You will never know how far you can push it till to test the waters.

  • Being you are over 18 and more or less in control of your life, you Need to Take Back your life, put your firm foot down, become your own straw boss and tell mom and dad this is your Life and they have to let go or You----Will be gone... Annie, get your gun.
    I feel you are old enough to have a boyfriend and with this dating and mating, goes spending the nite together. They have you under their roof, under their thumb and are keeping a close watch on you, Protecting you Under their wing as well. You have to talk to them, toot your horn and lay a few of your own ground rules down. If you're working, give them a little room and board and shut the lion's mouth. This will gain you a little independence. It worked for me... I came and went as I pleased, thank you.
    If you're not working, you need to get a job, perhaps find another nest or talk to a friend about sharing the beaks of the bills with them so you can be your own Free bird.
    Good luck. xx

  • um, unless you are planning to have sex at his house, i don't understand why your parents make such a big deal of you staying at his place for one night. it's not like you're moving in with him. seriously though, say you're having a girls night sleepover party at one of your girl friends' house and have your friends help cover for you. or you guys could just get married if you're ready for that step. otherwise, the previous suggestion should work just fine...

    • ya sex

    • oh... well either way... you can still use the girls night sleepover trick. i'm sure your friends will cover for you. or prove to your parents he'll be your one and only (if you guys are seriously madly in love) by telling them he proposed. instant trust... usually...

  • Im 23 and Girl i know what it's like to have strict parents that no matter how old you are they'll still treat you like a child. The only way that i got to sleep over my bf's house was by sneaking out at 130am, (this late bc they go to bed late =/ ) but if you're parents go to sleep early then go after an hour they have been sleeping. THe thing that sucked was that i had to come back home early in the morning so they wouldn't notice i was gone like at 630am. But if i left on a Saturday i would back at 8am on Sunday because they sleep in on sundays.

    I hate it, the same thing as your parents "their house, their rules". I feel so controlled that when i get the money i want to not just leave the house or even the state but the country!!

  • Be original? Have you never snuck out or lied to them before? Say your going to stay at a friends house and go by his place instead.
