If you are in the market for a hammock that can hold more than one person, it's very important to purchase a hammock stand that can hold the load. An all-steel, heavy-duty construction hammock stand is your best bet. You can also purchase a wood hammock stand, but double check the packaging to see what weight the wood hammock stand is rated for. You should actually check any hammock stand for weight ratios, but heavy-duty steel construction is naturally more durable when it comes to two or more hammock occupants. Read the labels and you won't be disappointed.
