This is very believable.

If I had to choose between living with a roomie and living with either of my parents, I'd choose moving in with my parents any day.

Also, it's actually customary in many other counties to live @ home til you're married. I don't think there's anything wrong with living at home.

If the house is big enough, and we're not in close quarters...why not?

I read somewhere Jaime Foxx lived in a house with both of his divorced parents, apparently his parents never see each other. If it was a setup like that, I wouldn't mind.

Idk, where I live (D.C. area) there's a lot of pressure to be independent and leave the "roost". Everybody's an overachiever lol. I'm 24, living at home and am finally moving out this spring after boomerang-ing back home after college 2 years ago (I'm working FT and only getting older, so there's no more excuses)!

I do agree that if you get TOO comfortable and too afraid to take risks in life, you can end up staying at home longer than expected. Many Millenials are used to the lifestyle acquired by their parents, and "slumming" it on our own (not being able to shop at Whole Foods, take nice vacations, etc.) is not an option in a lot of people's minds, unfortunately. If you're really saving money for the future, staying at home can be useful--but I think there should be a plan/goal to eventually move out. But IMO, living in the suburbs def isn't an ideal location at all for young, single people.

To save money, I plan on living in a tinyyyy studio or share a place with a compatible roomie (but have my own private room and bathroom).

But taking risks and "spreading your wings" in your 20s is important if you're like me and love adventure and...change.

I'm 28 and live at home. I'm planning to move once I find a full-time gig in my field. It's customary for the kids in my culture no matter the age to live at home until they move out (job, school, etc) or get married anyway. I was in grad school and working part time so I wasn't able to afford to live on my own anyway

Meh. My parents havent supported me financially since I got my first job when I was 18. I live at home now but that would not have been the case if I wasn't in school. But I pay for EVERY other aspect of my life- only free thing is rent and utility bills. They always instilled in me the importance of saving your money and having a job lined up before I graduate, and I do ( though I know this isnt the case for the majorit of college grads because the economy is *&%^$#@Eed). I see nothing wrong with making your kid leave at 18 if they aren't doing anything with themselves. I wouldn't let my grown ass kid chill in the house all day everyday either. I wouldn't mind my kid staying home with me while they look for a job, but once they get one then it's time for them to start their own life under their own roof. I have no resentment towards my parents for making me be financially responsible for myself when I turned 18. I actually appreciate the fact that my parents weren't as giving when it came to money. Because of that, I am more financially responsible than almost everyone I know, especially those my age. That responsibility never hindered my from enjoying my youth and I'be never had to stress about money because they taught me the importance of saving at a young age, plus I'be always loved just having money even if I'm not saving it for anything in particular. I plan to do the same thing to my kids if I have them. I know too many people who have been coddled their whole life's and now their grown as sh*t, not doing anything because they've never been pushed.
