Mainstream Multigenerational

Interfamilial living is becoming culturally accepted in North America

Implications - Though common practice in places like Asia, South America, and Europe, living in multigenerational households is not typically seen in North America. A combination of increased biculturality and financial savvy has brought this concept to the mainstream. An offshoot of the communal living boom single Millennials are flocking to, multigenerational living has the added advantage of being family-friendly. This is appealing to Millennials who, despite stereotypes, do want to engage in traditional milestones of marriage and child-rearing, but are not financially capable.
