Who needs a four bedroom home for sale in Maine?
(Sound of happy kids jumping, hollering I do I do like the old Trident gum commercials.) So how about you? What is it you say? When the average family size is declining in US households according to the census information collectors.
I read this morning in a scan of the peepers that the average household size declined to 2.59 in 2010, dropping from 2.62 people in 2000.
How come? One-person households is part of the reason reckoned during head count results.
The number of single parents under the roof running the household rose from 25 percent in 2000 to 27 percent in 2010. This math statistic shows the figure is more than twice the percentage. From back in round not rectangular black and white television days in 1960. When number of the single parents in a household revealed only a tiny 13 percent.
This low number inside homes back in a time shortly after the shuddering started from Sputnik's global shock vibrations in 1957 caused a space race.
When folks started building bomb shelters, stocking up on MRE snackage and plenty of batteries, clean water.
The reading material to pass the time listening to the Emergency Broadcast announcements as they headed to the basements or a CD facility shelters.
The loss of a loved one to sickness or warfare or accidents on foreign soil did not mean the dinky single households number of only 13 percent back in 1960 was all divorce, marital knot untying caused either. Back in the time of Elvis doing contortions on stage with his hips.
Standing on his toes and balanced with a third leg called a leaning mic stand. While young girls screamed and swooned. Or during the era of big fin 1959 Cadillacs and the like on what roamed the roads for iron horses. The earlier Cadillacs a charmer too... like this 1941 we store at our Maine farm.
Things shift, change. It was unlike today when over half the married couples in a household don't stay that way.
And second marriage divorce rates rise to above 70% odds that "I won't" within two years of rolling the dice during the walk down the aisle and saying "I do".
Proving that it won't last until only death is the only reason we part. Divorcing couples, splitting up households is a growing segment of our real estate property listing inventory and closing sale numbers.
But growing family size happens when blending two sets of half, more or less size groups of kids. Yours, mine, and maybe an ours thrown in by a flying stork overhead to make it interesting.
Bigger cars, SUV's with third row and jump seating to fit everyone in. That shifts the size of a Maine home needed to at the beginning rise and shine and head to bed at the end of a day for the new family.
The latest US Census figures show the median age at first marriage increased to 28.2 for men and 26.1 for women in 2010, an increase from 26.8 and 25.1 in 2000. This increase is a continuation of a long-term trend that has been noted since the mid-1950s. Plus figure show the overall percentage of adults who were married at all declined to 54.1 percent in 2010 from 57.3 percent in 2000.
