More multigenerational families living together By Donna J. Jodhan This is a trend that started a short time ago due to circumstances and necessity and one can pinpoint the recent recession for starting this.  With hundreds of thousands of families unable to hold on to their homes because of an inability to pay their mortgages, we find that multi generations are doubling up so to speak; living together.
