A very depressing statistic from America:
More Young Adults Now Live With Parents Than Partners
It’s the first time that this has happened in the U.S. in more than 130 years.
In 2014, Americans 18 to 34 years old were a little bit likelier to be living in their parents’ home than with a spouse or partner in their own household, according to a Pew Research Center analysis of U.S. Census Bureau data, released on Tuesday. It’s the first time that has happened in the modern era.
Of 18 to 34 year olds, 31.6% are living with partners, 32.1% with parents.
That’s quite a milestone, with far reaching social implications, especially if the trend continues. Now that housing is out of reach in NZ we are moving in the same direction. How long before we pass the same milestone – or have we done so already?
