Am I Jerk Asking Fiance To Sleeping On Couch So That My Daughter Could Sleep In My Bed.

We all love to sleep on a comfortable mattress. However when you are travelling we learn to adjust with the situation and at times we sleep on the floor or on the couch. Read the story to know what happened in this family when they were travelling and how would you have handled the situation?

So I (43m) have a fiancée (39f) and I also have a daughter (16f), and the three of us traveled to visit my fiancées parents to have them meet us. Last night we got a hotel for the last night before we drove home, and my fiancée and I were in the master bed and my daughter was in the pull out couch bed in the next room, and shortly after we went to sleep, my daughter asked if she could sleep in my bed with me.

My daughter is on the spectrum and has anxiety from previous trauma and has some trouble with being alone in unfamiliar places, so I said absolutely and I initially offered to go sleep on the pull out couch with her but she said it was very uncomfortable and she needed to sleep on a real mattress. I asked my fiancée if she’d be willing to sleep on the pull out couch for the night, and she seemed a little annoyed. I offered to get another room for us or to figure something else out, but she insisted it was ok. So my daughter and I shared the master bed and my fiancée slept on the pull out couch.

Today we got home and she seemed kind of passive aggressive with me and when I asked what was wrong, she said she felt completely sidelined and like she was treated with no respect or decency last night. I told her I was sorry but my daughter was in distress and I needed to do something, and she insisted she’s not a little kid and could’ve done something else that didn’t involve sleeping in my bed with me. Then I told her she was starting to get out of line and she needs to understand I have an autistic daughter so if we’re going to be together, she needs to understand stuff like this will happen from time to time. She got very annoyed with me and then walked off.

Am I Wrong?
