Okay, first I need to say that I'm one of those people that once I put furniture in place, I like it to stay there. It's just one of my quirks.

With that said, if a guest were to place two beds together, I don't think that would bother me as long as 1) the floor wasn't scratched and 2) they put the beds back at the end of their stay.

Taffy, I think your friends are very comfortable with you and feel welcome with you and your hospitality. They probably would feel bad if they knew that it irritated (?) you to have the beds moved.

I hope they have been putting the beds back at the end of their stay.

You are entitled to feel the way you do, doesn't make it right or wrong. I'm such a help aren't I.

Personally, I would only mind them moving the furniture if I had to move it back after every guest left. That's mainly because I would move the beds together so I could sleep closer to my husband, but I would absolutely move them back where they were.

As an aside of sorts, if moving the beds really does bother you, maybe have 2 full size beds instead of twins. At least on a full size, there's enough space for 2 people to sleep without suffocating each other or sleeping opposite with feet in each others faces.

LOL! Even if my hubby and I wanted to, there simply is just not enough room for us both in a twin bed. Matter of fact, the queen bed we sleep in is looking a wee narrow to us now too! Maybe it's time to call Jenny?

When Don and I were young and trim, we could easily fit on the couch laying down with extra room. Oh how the years have added and enriched our relationship, and our waistlines!

No, I would not rearrange the beds unless I asked first, and I wouldn't ask unless the guest were a close friend.

There is just as much horse sense as ever, but the horses have most of it.

I wouldn't have moved the furniture. As much as I love my husband, unless we were in seperate rooms, in which case I WOULD squeeze into a twin bed to sleep next to him, sleeping only a couple feet apart wouldn't bother me. I just don't think it would occur to me.

That being said, like others have already mentioned, if you haven't given them a reason to believe you disapprove, they're not really in the wrong. UNLESS, the floors are wood, fake or real, and could potentially be scratched. I would then find it ballsy and kind of rude to risk it.
