Nearly half of men under 25 -- at least those surveyed by Rent.com -- are paying zilch for their living arrangements. It's no great secret how: They're depending on the kindness of family, or in some cases friends.
They're not the only ones.
The recession and sluggish recovery have put many more people in the category of living with Mom and Dad (or Sis or some other relative with a roof over their heads) out of financial necessity, regardless of age. And in good times and bad, there are always those who move in with family to take care of aging or ill loved ones.
Is this you -- or was it? Is it more upside or downside -- more togetherness or stress?
While we're on the subject, have a poll:
Along with its survey, Rent.com released a Top 10 list of cities for bachelors. Houston was No. 1. No. 10? Baltimore.
"Baltimore, MD attracts singles with charming and scenic Inner Harbor bars and restaurants," the company said in a press release. "Statistics say there are plenty more single ladies than men in this city, and it’s both affordable and unique."
Not being a bachelor, I can't possibly weigh in on this one. What do you think?
