Contrast to my kids and their friends. They all have student loans of at least $20,000.00 - $100,000.00. Their friends would like to live on their own, but even if they have a job, rent for a 1 bedroom apartment will be anywhere from $750.00 - $1200.00, no utilities/per month.
Go back a few generations, when we were a agricultural (sp), several generations families would live together. Not considered a failure. And the US is different than other cultures, when generations live together.
