Many couples also choose to have a postnuptial agreement when they are relocating to the UK and at least one out of the couple want to protect their assets in the event of a future English divorce. Multiple generations in one practice with the oldest holding on to the power base and ownership can create pressure points for younger, ambitious professionals seeking a stake rather than simply a ‘steady job’. However, in devising and seeking to implement such succession and estate planning measures comes the realisation for many parents that their children will stand to receive significant amounts of wealth, and the resulting concern about what effect a divorce could have on this wealth. Even those currently living in multigenerational homes tend to have some misgivings about certain aspects of these arrangements.

How do people with current or past experience of multigenerational living view these housing arrangements? But the idea is to grow it over time, using the money to build something, reinvest in the family business, create new enterprises, and continue to build upon the foundation of the past for a better future. Law firms can be presented with the task of managing at least four and sometimes five different age groups. It’s important to remember that Millennials grew up enjoying peer-like relationships with caring adults, and they expect this benevolent mentorship to continue at work.The most common reasons why a post-nup, rather than a pre-nup is entered into is that it was not thought about before the marriage, the couple simply ran out of time before the marriage to have a properly considered, negotiated and executed pre-nup drawn up (the Law Commissions recommendation is that the agreement should be entered into at least 28 days before a wedding) or there has been a change in financial circumstances (such as a gift or advanced inheritance) for one of the parties to the marriage. By recognizing this critical distinction, law firm partners and recruiters can begin to understand how to motivate the youngest generation of lawyers. Millennials are considered more focused on experiences outside of work than within, but this does not hide or diminish their need for recognition and reward. In Italy and Spain, for example, the family home is often shared by people of different generations. By 2020, 50 percent of the workforce will be made up of Millennial or the ‘Y’ Generation; by 2030 it will be 75 percent ( US Bureau of Labor Statistics).

When it came to letting parents move in, Gen Zers were most open to the idea, whereas millennials and Gen Xers were progressively less willing. It is increasingly common for parents to contribute money to their offspring for a family home, or property renovations and if that contribution is a loan, not a gift, then a properly drawn up loan agreement can provide an added layer of protection in helping to ring-fence that money upon a future divorce. This ongoing demographic transformation may explain why a third of respondents believed that multigenerational would one day become more common than single-family homes: The “graying” of the UK may demand new domestic arrangements.A majority of Gen Xers felt the same, whereas millennials and Gen Zers were less optimistic about this prospect. For example, whereas 67% of those without multigenerational living experience thought a “lack of boundaries” might cause issues, just 39% of individuals who lived in multigenerational homes reported this problem.
