    I partially agree with what has been said above. But I believe there is a little bit of logic here. The younger you are, the easier it is to live with others in the same household, for various reasons. It is just my opinion and I absolutely don't mean to get involved in any deep discussions on this. I personally still feel like I can live with other tenants at the age of 35.
    Anyway, the extra amount I am now receiving is still not enough to rent my own 1 bed accommodation where I live, and the DHP (discretionary housing payment) is not guaranteed, so I am going to stay where I am for now.
