ill try to make this short and easy:im a girl.i have a boy cousin.my cousin's dad (my uncle, but not by blood) threw him out. now the only place he has to go is my house with my mom. me and my mom live in a 2 bedroom condo thats only 1000 sq. ft. its a good size for just the two of us. but now my cousin has to move in with us. he's a junior in high school (im a senior) so if this is long term, he would be living with us for at least 2 years.now, like i said before, its a TWO bedroom condo. a room for me, and a room for my mom.guess where my BOY cousin gets to live? my room. i'll have to share a room with him for at least a year before i go off to college and live on-campus. ive given up a lot in my life when it comes to my family, and after moving into this condo, i always had my room as my sanctuary to go back to when i needed space. now, im not going to have any space! my entire life is going to be invaded, AND he's a HE so its not even like im sharing a room with another girl! this is a GUY.sorry for venting a little. the reason im posting this, is because i really do not want to give up my room. i dont know what to do though. if i say i dont want to have him in my room, my mom wont make me, but the result might be having him be homeless for awhile. i feel like id be a bad person/cousin if i did this.any advice? i know this is a weird situation, but any thoughts or suggestions on what i should do would be extremely helpful!
This is difficult. I don't myself think it is appropriate for you to be sharing a room with a male at your ages. Ideally you might be able to find someone else who will take him in; if not, some other options are:1. You and your mother sharing one room, and your cousin in the other (this is how families used to handle two-bedroom houses: the mother and girls in one room, father and boys in another).2. Your cousin sleeps in the living-room on the couch - not too good for him, but probably the way most people would handle the situation now.
gotta say choice two. You are a senior you will have projects to do and you need you own space to hide away in lol
