Interesting....sort of confirms what most must have thought anyway......but who is to say what the right or wrong way of living is.....isn't the go to school, go to university, find a job, find a partner, get married, have a family, family fly the nest, have grandchildren, retire, do the gardening etc....a bit of old hat nowadays anyway?

It's incredible that there are so many single people households. That and the amount of 2 people households make up the majority. There must be a hell of a lot of single and couple pensioners living in multi-bedroom houses and a lot of families living in crowded flats, especially in places like London and the Southeast.

Yes....because unless your parents live in London or Southeast, people have left their parents living alone in the family house with empty bedrooms...... ;)

Spoke to a good friend of mine last night.

He has failed to sell his house, cashed in his pension, spent all his savings and is now official penniless.

He will borrow next month to survive and plans to try and sell again in January.

This is the penniless recovery.
