My 20 year old daughter is away at college, she comes home for the holidays and wants to spend the night with her boyfriend. My husband (stepdad) does not approve and we are in constant disagreement on this issue. I do have a problem with her spending the night but she's 20 (third year of college) responsible and I trust her. We have a good relationship but I feel caught in between my husbands disapproval and my daughter wanting to spend the night. Its very stressful how can i resolve this. I could really use some advise on this.

If she wants to spend the night with her boyfriend, and they are being responsible, it's none of your business, as long as it's not in your home.

I am with your husband on this. Most unplanned pregnancies are to college students. Besides that point I don't see a reason to spend the night. She can stay late at his house, but still drive home. Part of being responsible is also knowing when it is time to leave. If roads are bad or she is tired then she needs to leave earlier. I also feel that as long as you are under my roof then you need to respect my rules and values no matter your age.

Maybe point out to your husband that if he keeps it up she won't come and stay with you when she's back, she will stay with her boyfriend instead.
She's 20 and if you have done your job then you should trust her to be responsible.
