I need some input on whether my logic here is way off: So I currently am living in a 6 person house with some of my friends at college. We have an extra room open because one of my friends is sharing a room with his gf. We decided it would be smart to get someone else to live with us since we have the extra room, and I found a friend who'd be willing to live here. We were going to charge him a little cheaper rent since the room isn't as nice as some of the others. The problem is because we cannot decided how to split up my friends rent. The couple that are sharing a room seem to think they deserve a bigger portion of the rent because they are paying two people's rent for the same room. I think we should split the rent equally since nothing really entitles them to the room. Here's some of an e-mail he sent me about it today while I was at work: Am I just way off base here? He's paying to rent his spot in this house, what makes him think he deserves more of the rent we charge my friend?
