WASHINGTON — Young adult nesting in the parents’ basement is no longer an exception. According to the Pew Research Center, it’s a norm.
A study shows that Americans between 18 and 34 years old are more likely to live with parents than with their own partner or spouse.
The Center said more than 32 percent of those adults were still with their parents in 2014. That’s slightly more than those who lived with spouses or significant others in their own homes.
The last time more people that age lived with parents was 130 years ago.
The study said there has been a decline in romantic coupling, which led to more adults staying with mom and dad.
