Hello everybody,


I wondered if you can "offer hospitality to a member of your family" or if it's inly used with friends or strangers?

For example, "After my brother decided to sell his house (because he couldn't afford it any more), I offered him hospitality despite our disagreements/conflict" or "... I welcomed him in my house".

Thank you in advance!

    It's an unusual and somewhat formal expression in everyday use. I don't see any reason to differentiate family members, but personally I wouldn't use it at all.

    Thank you for your answer.

    If you wouldn't use it at all, why would be more appropriate to say then?
