The truth about singles in our society.

How to Live with Other People

Innovations in sharing a home and a life

Because of the popularity of my previous post, “Living alone: Everything you always wanted to know,” I thought I’d offer a comparable collection of discussions of ways of living with other people. Some examples of the topics covered are living with friends, living with your parents, living among other people in a genuine community, living as a committed couple—but not in the same home, and design features that promote meaningful social interactions.

If you are hungry for fresh writing, two of my more popular recent posts elsewhere were “How churches marginalize single people and how they can do better” and “Living the single-at-heart life like you never could before.”
