Parents can get weird about their kids sharing beds over the holidays. Even if the kids are married.

Ahh, Thanksgiving. A time of turkey, travel, tryptophan, and repeated viewings of "A Christmas Story" surrounded by family. If you're coupled up in a relationship, you boo is probably in the picture, too, and perhaps-awkwardly negotiating an overnight bedroom situation. Will he be sleeping in your room (read: bed)?
