Comments on: Golden Girls 2.0: Shared housing as a retirement strategy http://blogs.reuters.com/reuters-wealth/2011/07/01/golden-girls-2-0-shared-housing-as-a-retirement-strategy/ Fri, 05 Dec 2014 11:27:18 +0000 hourly 1 http://wordpress.org/?v=4.2.5 By: canrobs http://blogs.reuters.com/reuters-wealth/2011/07/01/golden-girls-2-0-shared-housing-as-a-retirement-strategy/comment-page-1/#comment-8779 Wed, 09 Nov 2011 15:21:29 +0000 http://blogs.reuters.com/reuters-wealth/?p=15393#comment-8779 As boomers age into retirement years, especially single boomers, I envision this as a viable housing option. Shared expenses and not living alone will allow many the freedoms, financially, that they would not have otherwise. Personally, I do not want to spend the bulk of my monthly income on basic living expenses. I want to travel and do things I have not yet done.
I do not want to live in a community of all older people. I want to live where there area children playing, and activity. I will not discount living with older friends.

Yes, it takes work, and sometimes the roomie doesn’t fit, but the friendships have been great!

Who in their right mind would want to live with a bunch of old women? Not me..that is certain. I am going to be 79 in October and I cannot abide my elderly neighbors who are a bunch of whiny, self-absorbed gossips. . . certainly not the sex crazed women seen on that ridiculous sitcom Golden Girls. There is nothing golden about senior years but I would rather live alone with my cat than share a place with a bunch of old hags.
