I guess it definitely depends on where you live/grew up. I couldn't imagine leaving the doors unlocked no matter where I lived. I wouldn't be able to sleep.

We never locked the doors in the community that I grew up in. Even when we went on vacation for several weeks. Never had anything stolen. Now when my folks visit here they have a bad habit of leaving their car doors unlocked etc even if they have been shopping and have a car full of shiny new goods.. NOT a good idea in Albuquerque.

Unlocked doors are a godsend for rapists like me.

No visitors are unannounced at our home...they don't get within 500 feet of the door before the Malinois starts going off.

We have had a couple of REALLY annoying "visitors" though...

They heard the dogs barking and howling and just sat in the driveway honking the horn. One time it was 4 or 5 Jehovah's Witnesses in a minivan, I told them if they wanted to preach, they were welcome in my home. The other was some idiot inquireing about the property next door.

My keyring has one key on it. It's the ignition key to my car. I've never had a key for the house. I think the wife has one. I've never locked a door to my house in +30 years.

Not locking doors is pretty normal around where I am.
Like I said before divorce is what got me to change my locks and lock the doors, Now a combination of a neighbor that will walk in, and habit from trying to keep my ex from taking everything from my house has caused me to keep the doors locked.
Probably for the better just because I have a 7 year old girl downstairs and from upstairs at the other end of the house it would take something very loud for me to know something was wrong downstairs.

Hopefully your kid and not some Buffalo Bill type set up...

In college, all exterior doors of the apartment I lived in were on proximity cards (we learned quickly that you didn't have to take the card out of your wallet, just raise a cheek high enough to get within the range and the door would unlock). Our actual apartment door varied, sometimes we locked it, sometimes we didn't. I honestly can't remember what I did at my first apartment out of college. When I first bought my house three years later, I was initially religious about locking up when I left. Can't remember when, or why, but I basically stopped locking the garage doors. Worked out well, a friend of mine was frequently borrowing tools, (it went both ways, and always returned).

Then... Denny moved in across the cul de sac. Denny used to live on the other side of the block, but came home one day to find his wife had taken out a restraining order (if that tells you anything about him), and he was no longer allowed in their house. Denny's mother lived across from me, and since he needed a place to crash on uber-short notice, he moved in with her. Now we're talking about the kind of guy that virtually nobody that knows him would be surprised to wake up in the morning and find out he had snapped and killed his whole family. I'd routinely run into him on Saturday mornings, drunk out of his mind by 10 AM, and he'd blab all his troubles to anyone with the misfortune to get caught in earshot. Didn't have to hear his story too many times to figure out he was just a little unstable. And all of a sudden, I found it convenient to start locking my doors again, and the Smith & Wesson moved from the safe downstairs, and now lives loaded & chambered in my nightstand.
