I agree that it takes a generation's worth of acceptance to get it into the "new normal" in society. I don't know that this type of arrangement will be the new normal, however (it excludes those of us who really don't want to live in such close proximity to that many people - even if I'm an extrovert, I love my "me space"), but I do also agree that we'll see more variety become the new norm. Hopefully including all sorts of relationship arrangements in the mix.
