Ok, so who are the Putmans? The are a family consisting of twenty five members who are living in the same home. Unbelievable right? The family is the mom and dad, the children and their spouses, and their children. It turns out to be 10 adults and 15 children all sharing two bathrooms. It sounds like an interesting concept, not one I would want to practice but interesting. I can only imagine the chaos. I can not imagine that many people in a small space. I need my privacy. It is rather nice though that this family is so close. What do you think? Could you live in close quarters with that many people?

Oh no! I hate to stay in a small room with a lot of people. I am used to live on a cozy place with few people.

I am used to just my husband and myself. When we have company for a few days I am ready for less people.

There are many there for sure. I would not be able to live without some privacy.

Nope, as an introvert to the greatest degree, I would be the first to move out of there.

I just don't thiink I could. I am a person who really needs time to myself. I don't even know that I could have done that when I was younger. Just to much "in your face" even if you are fond of each other.

I need alone time too. I have always needed it. To me it is too much togetherness.

I have checked their story, they live in a big 6,250-square-foot home in Caseville. As the story say they moved from a 3,000 square foot home to this bigger one and one of the sons is a constructor, I wonder why they did not add a couple more bathrooms.

It does make you wonder. I would not be able to share a bathroom with so many people.

@HazySue It would be a serious problem, I wonder how clean they are, you need at least 5 minutes to take a shower and another 3 to brush your teeth and floss.

@LadyDuck I wonder how they manage the time spent in the bathroom.

I can understand how they lived that way years ago, it seemed to be necessary.

I do believe in the multi-generational concept but, that is a lot of people in a two bedroom.

I think it is nice that they are all so close but all in the same house?

They wanted to all be together. It is the way they choose to live.

Nah, it will not work with me. Before, my Brothers use to live with us with their kids and spouses. Then later on parents found out that it's too crowded, so they divided our place for them to live.

I would image that much closeness would bring arguments and such.

I could for a day only! I can not live in such a situation longer; because I always wanted privacy.

It is a lot of togetherness, much more than I could stand.

Not a show that I will watch for sure. I am so tired of all those stupid shows. And no, there is no way I would want to live in a crowded room like this. We are used to our big house and very few people in it.

somehow, it reminds me of the american reality show '19 kids and counting.' i've never watched it, but read about it when there's news about it.

I'd have to have ten more bathrooms! Why are they all living together?

That is their choice to live together. I am not sure why.
