I have expressed that it is too soon to let the kids get this attached to her and that they do not need to see daddy having a sleepover with a new woman (and yes I believe that children of that age are fully aware of sexual activity going on). She disagrees with me and has told me several instances of the children getting attached to her. They are discussing the future but no imminent plans to get engaged (which of course makes sense).
What do you think - is it too soon as a general rule to expose the children in this way to her - is it a case by case thing - is it only up to him to decide or does she have an obligation to look out for their interests/needs. How soon have you met children and how soon have you had sleepovers, in a relationship. I have zero personal experience with this although I likely would not do a sleepover until we were married, if the kids were there. The only slightly similar situation was one I had a boyfriend's 8 year old niece stay over with him - she slept with me in my room, he slept on the couch in the other room and of course he is her uncle not her dad.
Thoughts - thanks!
