Not just adult children moving home

New research shows that in the United States, it’s not just adult children moving back into their parents’ homes. In fact, families are “doubling up” in all kinds of ways — to the tune of 663,000 in-laws and other relatives moving in with family in 2013 alone.

At the same time, more “working-age, unmarried or un-partnered adults” are moving in together as roommates in order to afford their housing costs.

All told, 32% of working age adults are now living in doubled-up homes of one variety or another.

It’s time to work on those communication skills to ensure that all adults sharing a household have the most positive experience possible.
