Yes, I didn't think it all the way through, I admit. I just got tangled to the assumption I made that a single person would need a two-bedroom apartment which I see a bit excessive.
As well pointed out there may be pothers for a single person to provide not just oneself. Didn't think it that far.
Then again I am a bit biased for here where I live it is relatively easy to get government benefits and welfare if you happen to be a single parent (child benefits) or providing for your senior parents (who then receive more or less adequate pension).
I have been kind of cushioned with the baaaaaad socialism here.
