I recently moved back in with my mom. I had 'moved out' in my early 20's (mostly because "nobody in their 20's lives with their parents " my cool friends say), but "had" to move back in when the only apartment I could afford to live-in got over-infested with bed-bugs. I can't afford to live anywhere, because my Brain-Injury makes me "socially unacceptable" (if I spend too much time with people, I start acting like they're my "family"). And I thought my condition was unique. But looking-upLog In, I read that 'my generation' (Generation X, which I also barely qualify for) is also known as The Peter Pan Generation or the Boomerang Generation because we ALL were hit with 'conditions' that made us move back in with our parents. (And yes, I know we didn't ALL move back in or -stay in with our parents; but it's no "unique action"!) Looking for more on 'Log In' (convenient: children of Boomers, we're the Boomerangers ), I found that it's more-&-more normal (like living-together-before-marriage, and/or pre-marital bed-sharing). And why would I move out? The only reason is the one the Bible gives in the book ofLog In, saying "That is why a man leaves his father and mother and is united to his wife, and they become one flesh." So--still single--it looks like I'll be staying here until my wife & I find each other (tho my sister AND HER HUSBAND, AND THEIR TWO CHILDREN were living here with my mom almost like I am now ... even though they were both gainfully employed as well ) How did it ever change from that?
