Hi all!

Three of us couples are headed on a retreat next weekend. We are staying 2 nihgts and rented two cabins since the maximum number you can fit in 1 cabin is 4 people. One couple will get to spend Friday night alone in the second cabin, while another one of us couples gets to spend Saturday night alone, leaving one couple out of luck. We are going to draw straws to determine the 2 lucky couples. I told my girlfriend that we should just draw once, and the loser will be out of luck both nights, my logic being we have a 2 out of 3 chance of having one night to ourselves. But she insists on us drawing straws twice one for Friday night and one with the remaining two couples for Saturday night. Her reasoning is that we have a 1 in 3 chance the first night and a 1 in 2 chance for the second night. Which way should we go?
