My partner will not let his two kids share a room

My partner and i have a 3 bedroom house. He has two children, which he hasnt seen in over 7 months. When he does get them it is for one night a fortnight. The boy is 6 and the girl is 3. I am pregnant with our first child and he wont put his two children in the same bedroom so we can have a seperate baby room. Instead he wants to move into a house with 4 bedrooms. We have just gotten settled into this house, and can not exactly afford a bigger houe, am i over reacting ? Is it as wrong as he is making it out to be that want his kids to be in the same room.

With a new baby on the way, you don't want to be trying to move or spending out more money that you can afford. There is no reason why the two of them can't share for a bit longer, and even once the baby comes - depending on if it's a boy or a girl, one or the other can share with the baby once he/she gets a little bit older. Even though we had a separate room for my second child, he spent a good bit of the first year with his crib in my bedroom. It was just easier to get up and feed him there, then it was to stumble around in the middle of the night if he woke up.

It is not right for boys and girls to share a bedroom. Each of them should have their own bedroom. However, if they are of the same gender, they can share a bedroom.

Actually it's common to have younger kids to share the same room no matter what gender

There is no reason why they shouldn't share a room. You need the space for your new baby. I agree with you. And you definitely shouldn't be trying to move again and use all that money. You're gonna need that money for the baby too.

At six and three of course they can share a room. However in a few years that wont be a good idea.

I think to be a foster parent each child needs their own room so why is that?i think his kids need to know they each have their own space the baby can stay in your room for a while and see now the kids are with the new baby then maybe let the baby in the youngest child room if it doesn't keep them awake why is it he hasn't been with his first kids for so long that not ok

When the children are older they should move out to there own rooms but at there age they should share a room. If you don't want a new house, consider a extension onto your current home.

I think it's alright if they share a room, but only if they have their own beds. Because they are still very young, they shouldn't know anything...

They have their own beds. The boy has bunkbeds and the girl has a toddler bed.
