My observations on why people have left Muir Commons (other than the obvious of getting jobs across the country): 1. One member of a couple really didn't like the cohousing experience. (It has been my observation that it is often the woman of a couple that is less than thrilled than the man. Somehow this doesn't fit the stereotype - have others see this?) 2. Families with growing kids find their homes too small. 3. Busy people don't like the structure of work requirements or feel that the work is a bigger comittment than they want. 4. Kids issues too numerous (and sensitive) to mention. Personally, I think that most excuses could be worked out if people really wanted the cohousing experience. Not to imply any criticism of people who don't want the coho experience - it is not for everyone, although I think we could all lighten up and make it a positive experience for a broader range of people.
