    Here in Spain is pretty common to be living in the parents house at that age, lol.

    I hear that in Spain the average age of when you get married is around 30. Is that true?

    I had to move back home at age 22...was there for less than a year.

    It was actually quite nice. I ate like a mfkin king.

    This isn't something to brag about. I'm still living like this because I was born in a poor country, and moving out now means death. I can only pay my taxes but die of starvation.

    I can't wait to move out though.

    Here in Singapore, it's the norm to live with your parents until you at least complete University, and most continue to stay with them for years after that. The youngest friend of mine who doesn't stay with his parents (he has 2 roommates instead) is 22. Houses are ridiculously priced for non-married couples.

    Some places it's kinda expected that you stay with your parents, so I wouldn't be able to judge that quickly.

    Personally, I've been in between. I stayed with my parents till I was 18, went off for compulsory army time; they migrated so my weekends were spent on my own (weekdays were all in camp, of course). After that, I continued to live on my own till uni, which I went to in the country they migrated to. So I stayed with them then. After uni, came back to my home and living alone. I kinda miss having family around, but living on my own has its perks too. Laundry/ironing aren't that much of a chore really, and neither is cleaning my room since I'm generally quite tidy. The hardest part is probably paying rent and trying to keep some of my salary for savings :P

    Heh, your quote is exactly what I meant by my first statement. I was alone since I was 18, but that's extreeemely rare. Now I'm 27, and 3/4 of my friends are still staying with their parents because of those house prices you mentioned (in Singapore as well).

    Edit: The other 1/4 are married :P

    i graduated college in may. i'm 23 and live at home for the time being as i save up for the incoming student loan bills in december. i don't mind living at home while i pay off most of my debt within a year's time. most of those i know who also graduated decided to do the same as it helps out a lot.

    I'm not sure why people are making such a big deal of living with your parents into your 20's.
    It's better to live with your parents until you can afford to buy a place and can start paying off the mortgage rather than renting for your whole life, if your parents are Okay with it.
    With today's economy, it's difficult for 18-26 year olds to move out and be stable, unless their family is wealthy.

    I'm 26 and have lived on my own since I was 18 for my own reasons - but I've had a very rough time of it.
    I'm only just now finding stability - and I wouldn't wish the hardships I've come through on anybody, if they could avoid it.

    I find it particularly surprising that so many people here, on an MMO forum, are condemning that sort of lifestyle. I thought geeks would be more accepting.

    Would living in a flat attached to your parents house be considered not as bad as living with your parents in the traditional sense?

    My weekly podcast can be downloaded here this week a chinese website sets up a way to rent a boyfriend. How much are you worth?

    At this point in how the world is crumbling around us most people will more then likely not end up living on our own but part of that problem is the economy is so bad and mc donalds jobs are now a career in terms of being able to find work and actually hear back after applying. People that insult others for this must just have it easy and either come from rich families who really don't care what the child does in the end or those that have families that are broken and not close with each other. I would imagine most people who get along with their parents would never fully cut all connections with them.

    As far as I can tell there are good reasons to stay at home for a bit longer these days if it is at all possible.

    - Crazy student debts in a lot of places
    - High prices of houses
    - Shitty mortgage constructions that ruin you financially because you didn't have a nestegg

    It is pretty much the only moment in your life where you can save up some money with ease so you can have a lot more financial security in the future. However, if you are doing that obviously don't piss all your money away in clubs etc. and don't be a lazy bum when it comes to chores around the house or paying your own groceries etc.

    Your friends can laugh but they are rotting away in a house they bought when the prices were still killer and got stuck in a bad mortgage product while you are enjoying playing out sellers of currently already cheap houses (in most western countries at least) while paying 25%/35% of the initial house cost out of pocket. Or paying off that high student loan right away. Whatever you need to do to keep intrest payments low and extra money in your monthly budget high.

    "oh but I can say I did it by myself". No, you followed social pressure, moving out too soon and buying as big a house as possible, maxing out your credit card on the furniture to act around your friends like you are wealthy RAWR!!!
    Then you are a true sheep following the flock. What they don't tell you are now screwed for the next XX years living month to month while his buddy who saved up for a few years and bought a moderate house in a good market is going on his second holiday this year because he is easily putting away an extra $300 each month.

    Anyways, stop listening to stupid people.
