Finally, we reflect on how the impact of the COVID‐19 pandemic on multigenerational relationships may vary by gender, race, ethnicity, and socioeconomic status.
One of the most consistent predictors of intergenerational relationship quality is consensual solidarity (e.g., value similarity; Gilligan et al., 2015; Rossi & Rossi, 1990; Sechrist et al., 2011; Suitor et al., 2013).
The COVID‐19 pandemic is likely to complicate support decisions in multigenerational families (Stokes & Patterson, 2020).
Coresidence is a strategy that multigenerational families may employ to promote social support exchanges and mitigate risks during the COVID‐19 pandemic.
The economic stressors associated with the COVID‐19 pandemic are likely to increase feelings of tension in multigenerational families.
