Basically the reason is because the parents dont want younger siblings to know of the relationship so they dont get ideas of doing them ( lol over protective for the sisters) would you as a girlfriend understand this? or no?

If it is for a good reason then it probably wouldn't bother me.

Just introduce her as your friend If not your going to have to spend more time away from home at her house if your parents won't let her come there. They would be effectively kicking you out for having a girlfriend. Seems waaaay over protective, but if they want it done that way theres nothing you can do they're their children.
But I would ask if they are ok with her being there and you can tell them she's your friend. nothing more. If the parents agree, talk it through with gf and see if she's ok with it (she kinda has to be but dont tell her that) and hey presto, problem solved

I introduced my boyfriend to family early on, as did he; and both parties felt very comfortable with it being that way.

It's a bit of a weird reason not to introduce her to your family, but fair enough. If your family are uncomfortable with it, there's nothing much anyone can do about that.

Why not just introduce her as a friend? There's no harm in that.

wouldn't bother me, his family are his business, I'd like to get to know them but if he didn't want me to for whatever reason that's up to him

My bf didn't introduce me to his family for about 6 months into our relationship whereas he met my family pretty much instantly. It bothered me at first until I met his dad and then I understood why he hesitated. His family knew about me from the start which I suppose was the main thing.
