Well it actually made me happy in the sense that they are finding local couples to "adopt" - which works out well for everyone. The young couples have wiser people to talk with and gain from, and the elderly people have young people to take care of them. So everybody gains from it.
And really the "overbalance" right now is only a temporary thing, as the population settles into its new shape. In a relatively short while, once that older population ages and passes away, they will settle down into a much more even distribution. So yes they definitely have to find solutions while they go through this phase but then everything will get so much better in terms of available food, available resources, housing size and so on.
