Besides college years, which was fun, I had a roommate family after my divorce in my early 30's. Our neighbors were close friends and our children were, too. We often played bridge together and the wife was my best friend. We loved to talk and laugh over coffee. One day, my husband left. About a month later, her husband left, taking all their savings and went home to Japan. Both of us had to find jobs and go to work, and we decided to all live in my home with the combined 5 children, and rent out her home. We gave each other moral support and it helped financially. Surprisingly, we had alot of fun together. I don't know that I would want to do that again, but it really was a lifesaver financially and emotionally.
