Living together with parents

I do not live with my parents for about 4 years. Why? I am gay. I would like to go to my father and speak with him when I have problems. But he ignores me. Because of the economic downturn, adult children across the country are moving in with their parents — 62 percent of the more than 6 million multigenerational households in the United States were created by grown children moving in with their parents; in 50 percent of those cases, financial trouble was the main factor in the decision. Yep, I would like to move in to y parents and not only because of the economical situation, however, as I want to feel their love and support.

Take it from someone who has been there and done that: Don't live together before you are married - with your in-laws, that is. There are some things that you will want to keep special for marriage. Like letting them know that their lasagna "isn't really your favorite." Or expressing your belief that raw hamburger shouldn't be cooked in a toaster oven.On your first visit to "meet the parents" you do strange rituals like offer to do the dishes, dress impeccably, and make small talk about how nice the lawn looks. But when you leave your toothbrush in their bathroom, it's impossible to keep up that magical façade. Yes, they will see your dirty laundry - and you will not-so-subtly hope that they will do it, too.

Living together with parents

Living together with our parents is the worst thing in our life when we have serious relationships with our partner. But to live with my partner's parents is much worse. I think that young people, or simply couples need to live separately from their parents, anyway. It is another step to avoid conflicts in your young family!

I have always thought,that when the time is right and I won't be a kid anymore,I will have to learn how to live my life by myself,live it my own way,find my own path.The priceless help that our parents are giving us,whe we are little ones,can't be denied.So,when we grow up,they are still there for us,they are our guarding angels,ready to come over whenever they are needed.That's why they deserve to have their own time right from the moment we;ve become adults.They put their best into us-then there's time to thank them.Don't ever forget that,ever in your life.

Living together with parents

I love my family)Living with adult children can be really good, but it can also put pressure on families when there are several adults living together. It is even harder if you still think of your young adults as children. The major reasons for leaving home are to be independent, because of conflict, or to live with a partner. If none of these reasons are strongly felt and there is support, if there is a reasonable amount of independence and freedom at home, and some financial advantage, young people are less likely to leave.

Boundaries separating you from family occur automatically when you’re independent, formed either by the physical distance or the amount of contact you orchestrate. When you live together again with family, boundaries can blur rapidly. One of the first orders of business is to install ground rules that reshuffle the boundaries to ensure everyone’s freedom and comfort. If you want rules, make them clear, but not in an authoritative way—more in the manner you would tell your husband , “I know you need to know this.”

I think living together with parents is not a very good idea. I think when we grow we should become independent, and if we would live with our parents, we would be dependent from them. Our moms and dads will always treat us like little children and they can have another point of view as for many things. So if you'd like to be an independent person you should live alone.
