Only sincere, empathetic responses please.
I haven’t found much on the intersection of hosting rooms out of your home while going through a separation/divorce.
My partner moved out two weeks ago. All of the guests that arrive over the next several weeks booked before the split, so my guess is they’re expecting my partner and step-son to be at the house. I’ve avoided telling some guests directly… And even if they refer to things as “you guys” I just ignore it and still don’t tell my guests.
I feel kind of odd being in such pain with guests living in my home. When my partner still lived here, we made sure to have our conversations/disputes/arguments quietly or away from the house. I still got great reviews during that time. Now that it’s becoming a real thing, it’s so different. I thought I had already suffered the pain while decided to break up, but this is like nothing I’ve ever experienced before.
I wonder if Airbnb considers this an extenuating circumstance for canceling? Maybe not canceling will help me focus on things other than the pain?
Did you go through divorce while hosting? How did that work for you?
