Do you know anyone who's lived in the same house their whole lives?

We've been asked to comment on a radio show on this and would love to have your views. Is this something you or anyone you know have done? Are people moving around more? Did you stay in the same area, if not the same house?

I have a friend who’s husband has lived in their house since he was born.. he’s about 60 years old now. I admire how she knows what matters in life, she’s not materialistic.

My brother still lives in our family home. He is 68 and shows no sign of moving even though the place is far too big for just him. I moved once from one side of the country to the other when I married so have only ever known two houses.

Chap next door moved in when he was 2. He's 97. So not quite all his life but almost!
