There are times in most of our lives when we are faced with a cohabitation situation wheteher it's a relative, a friend or a lover. Sometimes these cohabitation scenarios can be a bit bizarre in nature with some people allowing their ex-spouses or ex-lovers to move back into their homes for whatever reason whether it's for the kids or to help to relieve a financial situation or to try to rekindle an old flame.
Many times we will take a boarder into our homes to help make ends meet or to give structure in a person's life or just because we may have the extra space available and someone needs to use it.
People who have extra space for use in their homes are often targeted by those who may be looked at as drifters or nomads and may be transitioning from a different town, state or country in some instances.
If you have a big house with rooms that people think that you don't use should you offer living space to someone who may need it?
Are you able to deal with people living with you liberally or do you become tyrannical and implement lots of rules that must be strictly followed?
How do/ would you deal with a boarder that wants to have company over regularly whether it's company of the opposite sex or just friends? If they are paying rent should they have free reign or does the rent just cover minor expenses and the feeling is like: It's still my house!
Why do you think some people take in boarders or lovers frequently? Is it to combat loneliness or could there be other reasons that don't get considered often?
What about the way children may be affected by parents moving boyfriends or girlfriends in? Is this irresponsible parenting or should the children trust who the parents trust and just hope for the best?
Is it selfish that some people won't allow anyone to move in no matter what the situation is?
