Can I add my sister's boyfriend to my car insurance even though he's not directly related to me?

Can I add my sister's boyfriend to my car insurance policy? My sister comes over often, and while I don't like it, her boyfriend also comes over and drives my car. I'm worried about the consequences if they get in an accident.

“It’s always a good idea to add drivers who frequently use your vehicle to your car insurance policy even if they don’t live with you.
Keep in mind that if another driver gets in an accident using your vehicle, your insurance rates will likely be affected.
If anyone drives your car without your consent, this can be considered non-permissive use and you may not be held liable for damages in the event of an accident.
You might want to ask them to buy non-owners car insurance for supplemental coverage that you aren’t responsible for.”
