My brother lives with my parents and has never moved out.
I moved out at 21. He has achieved much more because of his living situation. Car, 401K, health insurance, huge savings. Me, college degree, low paying job, nothing else.
My other brother and his family lives on my parents property.
As a group they have been able to help one another through the up and downs of life. And as a plus my parents are more than happy to treat my brothers as grown men. As my mom says she has her own life.
With the economic situation we have had serious conversations about being a multi-generational family.
Great- grandparents through grandchildren. We believe this is the only way we will be able to all live the American dream.
I think this is just going to be part of the new reality.
