Millennials Living With Their Parents Isn't Just A Stereotype

If you think you're the only mooch sleeping on mom's couch, you're in luck — millennials are more likely to live under their parents' roofs than any other generation since the '40s. What's more, living with good ol' mom and dad is more likely than living with a spouse or partner for the first time since the 1960s.
That's all according to a new Pew Research study that looked at census data from 2014. Thirty-two percent of 18- to 34-year-olds lived with their parents; now that's not the highest ever, but it's the highest in modern history.
And unfortunately for us dudes, heading back home is more likely to happen to us. Young men live with their parents 35 percent of the time, while that percentage for women is lower at 29 percent.
