How do you feel about growing old and having to live with your adult kids? Would it work out?

I hope to get old & have a heart attack & go quickly. Iā€™m really not up for living with my kids.

Oh. I don't know. She is 22 and not married. I think it depends a lot on how her DH and I get along.

Honestly, I hope she just puts me in a home. I don't what my end to be anymore traumatic for her than it needs to be.

I feel the same way.

I'd have no problem with it. 

I don't think my dh would embrace it as much as I would be.

Nope - not for me.  Two of them are too messy for me (they aren't really "messy" - just not as particular about some things as I am).  The other two would simply drive me nuts.  One of the messy ones would WANT to be the one to take care of me.  Luckily - my husband is 9 years younger than me.

What if something happens to your husband and you become sick?  And you need the kids help....

I won't do it. I'll go into a home.

I'm not hugely into the idea, however if for some reason it became a need, my two adult children and I get along very well, and I have very good relationships with both their partners.

I hope I can live out my days in some Golden Girls condo somewhere and go in the middle of bingo & cocktails.
