Record Number Of Women Now Live In Parents' Basement, Lack Of Weddings Blamed

Tyler Durden's picture

It was less than two months ago that we brought you “The Mystery Of The ‘Missing Inflation’ Solved, And Why The US Housing Crisis Is About To Get Much Worse.” In it, we documented the inexorable rise of rents in America which, thanks to the housing crisis, has gone from being  a society of homeowners to a society of renters, wiping out two decades of “progress” on the homeownership rate in the short span of seven years. 

Of course to a certain extent (scratch that, to a “great” extent), the market sowed the seeds of its own destruction by creating ever more “creative” was to allow everyone, even those who couldn’t document their income, to realize the American dream. 

Now, the surge in demand for rentals coupled with the fact that because the cost of capital on Wall Street is zero allowing PE to compete with everyday homebuyers has left millennials effectively stuck between rents the can’t afford and homes they don’t qualify for. Throw in a post-crisis economy that churns out waiters and bartenders thanks in part to the fact the very same $1.2 trillion in student loans that are weighing heavily on recent graduates’ finances and you have the perfect setup for a return to mom and dad’s basement. 

On Wednesday, Bloomberg is out noting that at an astounding 36.4 percent, the number of women age 18 to 34 living with their parents is now the highest since record keeping began more than seven decades ago:

Some 36.4 percent of women age 18 to 34 lived with their parents or relatives in 2014, the highest since records began in 1940, according to a report released Wednesday by Pew Research Center in Washington. While the share of young men was even greater at 42.8 percent, it wasn't quite as high as it was some 75 years ago.

 

But the punchline here is that the Pew Center blames this rather alarming statistic on school and weddings: 

College enrollment rates for both full- and part-time students have generally increased over the past couple decades, and some students may be trying to offset stiff tuition costs by bunking with their parents. 

 

Eternal happiness can wait. Millennials are much less likely to be married than their parents were at their age, and marriage often serves as an impetus to move out. 

We'll close with Pew's take on the economy and Harvard's. Note the vastly divergent "opinions." We'll let you decide who's right:

Pew: 

The increase is puzzling considering the improved state of the economy and an improving job market that has helped more young people earn enough to venture out on their own. Here are some of the longer term forces that could be at play.

Harvard: 

Millennials are also expected to continue experiencing rent burdens as they age. Having entered the labor market during and following the Great Recession, those in the millennial generation have received lower wages and experienced higher rates of unemployment and underemployment than their older counterparts at this point in their lives. As a result, millennials have less wealth accumulated, have delayed forming new households, and are less likely to become owners at the age that older generations had previously. In combination, we are likely to see additional household formation by millennials over the next decade and expect a relatively higher share to remain renters during that period.

If the weather wasn't so bad there could be more weddings.
Say, why don't we just start controlling the weather?

Divorce laws and welfare have destroyed marriage.  Lots of kids without a father for the military and jail cells.  The more you know about the elite creeps the more you hate them.

"Family Court" should be called "fuck-the-man-up-the-ass Court"

If your lucky you'll find that special woman that'll stay with you long enough to have your children then leave and sue you for alimony and child support all the while denying you the right to see your children.

Pretty sure it is because of the insane bias divorce courts give to women.

Execute about 20 judges who illegally negated pre-nups and I think you will see a lot more marriages in the near future.

Who needs Women?

Nobody.

 

Unless you are lesbian.

 

Real men don't NEED women.

Men need women like fish need a bicycle.

TPTB have been very adept at destroying the family unit in the west... It all began in the 60's with the inception of the femnist movement... What we see today is a direct result of deacdes of social programming of women...  I would not touch ANY woman that was exposed to US culture as it poisons any woman that comes into contact with it, natural born or immigrant...

Personally I blame the junk food industry.

This will work wonders for the fertility rate. Keep importing African niggers and South American indians for the perfect combo. Oh I'm sorry, I mean people with genetically enhanced skin tonality, we have to keep this a 'safe place', right?

White people entered self-destruction mode, and no one else to blame for it.

You mean the Jews and their Goyim associates have been very adept at destroying the family unit. And not only in the West. They did the same thing in USSR in the '20s. The situation got so bad that Stalin had to intervene and put a stop to it. Don't think for one second that I'm a fan of Stalin. He hijacked the Bolshevik Revolution and the Jews killed him. You can search some references for "the doctor's plot in 1953" or "sex in the Soviet Union". They managed to kill him, but the Jews never regained the reigns of the Soviet Empire. So they fled en-masse for Israel and USA. Their subversive methods are very well documented in Kevin MacDonalds' "Culture of critique and E. Michael Jones' "The Jewish revolutionary spirit and its impact on world history".

But it is a lot of fun to own a plane...

Keyser's picture

Unless you fly over 300 hours per year, it is more cost effective to rent than to own an airplane... Trust me, I know, been there, done that... Same as women, cheaper to rent than to own...

In the 60's hippies painted their airplanes zany colors but they wouldn't fly after that. They weren't plain anymore.

If you're lucky enough like me, you find a woman that refuses to marry you.

 

I wonder if it would help if I actually ask her to marry me?

Silly. Any woman who would accept you obviously doesn't have the standards you want and is therefore not good enough for you.

Thanks for that contribution from the Groucho Marx school of marriage counseling.

Government sponsored Shot Gun weddings?

I wouldn't doubt it. In the USofA you would be raised until a woman chooses you to marry. Then you serve your whole life pleasing her, while she cares nothing for your happiness. Is the petition on Change.org yet?

Dave-o - A better idea for using women for taxation purposes. From now you need a Fucking License.

Anybody caught fucking with that fucking license you get a fine. If you dont pay the fine you go to jail and get to make widgits for corporations for .90 cents an hour.

 Sponsored by Carls Jr. and Brawndo. 'Bating' also a fine but just a misdemeanor.

In regards to "bating", starting at the 3:00 mark.....

If american women were Japanese/asian there would be more weddings and less divorce. American women have become abortion sluts and gold diggers, appoligies to the one good american women left.

The last few dates I ever went on with Murkin women were all the same... I felt like I was on a job interview during the first 15 minutes... After that, I lost interest as they were only interested in my net worth... After a while, I began to turn the tables on these wenches and ask them pointed questions, like, do you take it up the poop chute, how many men have you screwed in the last year and the best one, what is you total credit card balance... Always fun to turn the tables, for shock value if nothing less...

Announcing my new National Start Up.

PYD aka Peddle Your Daughter.

Yes, parents, I'm offering you a chance to get your daughter 'out there', in the world, turning a buck on her own, without your total financial support and backing.  And, better yet, for each night your daughter is away from home, I'm offering YOU $10!

Your daughter will be socially rotated until she meets the man of her dreams and settles down.  It may be the nice, clean cut, kid down the street, or she may be the fourth wife of a german immigrant living in a shed with twenty four kids of others to take care of; but YOU get $10 a every night!!!

As an added bonus, if your daughter is white with blonde hair, you'll get a BONUS $2 extra per NIGHT!!

And if she has blue eyes, that's a whole 'nother dollar...that's $13 a NIGHT to get that useless bitch of a daughter out of your basement and into the real world.

Act now, categories are filling up fast due to the expansion of the European influx of migrants.  Demand won't last much beyond 2215, so hurry!!
