When using plural possessives, do you make the noun afterwards plural?

For example:

Many families own pets which live in their homes.

or

Many families own pets which live in their home.

  • english -

    Since the homes belong to several families, you'll need to use the plural form.

  • english -

    To make the sentence have a plural possessive noun, you would need to say,
    "Many families'pets live in their homes."

    Then, families' is the plural possessive.
