The study conducted by Duke University found that married and single mothers suffer higher rates of depression when they live in multi-generational households in their baby's first year of life.

However, the study suggested that moms, who lived with their romantic partners but weren't married, had lower rates of depression when they had one or more grandparents in the house.

The lead author of the study, Joy Piontak, said that the variance between subgroups may partly reflect differing expectations and stigmas and there is a strong expectation that married couples will be economically self-sufficient.

Piontak added that families are often a lot more complex than we imagine them to be, though. And that complexity can affect mothers' well-being.
