Do you ever think that if you didn't spend so much money on your car you could move out? Not so much on this board but on other boards I see 20 yr olds driving 30k cars with all sorts of mods and act like badasses, then at the end of the night go home to mommy and daddy. I guess it's no wonder so many people still live at home when other people the same age are already married with kids. lol I guess pretty soon in society it will be acceptable to move out when you turn 30 :eek:

Some are just fine with living at home. I moved out when I was 18. Too bad I didn't stay at home. I would have a badass car by now. :D

I can't stand being governed by parents. My parents have the rule, "if you are in my house, you follow my rules." So if I were 55 y/o, I'd only be able to stay out until midnight...etc So, they are in PA, I moved to TX just to make sure I don't have any issues with that. haha

So, to answer the question. If they were truly adults, they'd be driving more conservative cars...most likely. However, I do feel it is okay to chill at home if you hit tough times...or even while attending college if appropriate. I think rent is called for though.

Take care,

Ive learned that if u mind your own business it wont bother u as much. My parents live at my home go figure. Everyone is in a different situation some people have it easier than others. Its not fair but hell lifes not fair and never will be.

I moved back home to build up a cushion for a few months in my checking/savings account. Once done, I was out, and it was a decent experience, but i by far wasnt mooching.

I left home right when I was 17 which was less than 2 months after I graduated. I don't see how people can live with their parents. I got out as fast as I could.

I moved out at 15...my parents had the "you live under my roof, my rules" thing going and I was to stubborn to listen. Kinda wish I'd stuck around longer tho-they did know what was best-and I made my fair share of mistakes. I hope my kids aren't as rotten as I was growing up :eek: What comes around goes around...lol-that's my moms motto now :rolleyes:

im 21 and still live at home. I work at wal mart, pay my way through school, pay my truck payment, my gas bill, all of my CC's and my computer. I enjoy living at home, my mom is a blast to live with LOL. she doesn't have any rules set forth for me. you guys shouldn't dog on people cause they live at home. its not a situation of, in every case, of someone living at home and mooching off of mom and dad.

i stayed at home for a long ass time. my mom has pretty crappy health and she needs help to do many things. she was real relaxed on rules, allowed me to do anything i wanted.

this past year i moved into my first new house. now i spend almost as much time over there helping as i do at my home. within the past two months her health has gotten real bad :( , so i might have to move back in.. and make my own house payments on a house i dont live in :mad:

Sorta the same situation. I live at home, about to turn 21. My parents are great and I dont mind living here. I dont have any rules, they know Im old enough to make my own decisions. Everyonce and a while my mom cooks me dinner or something just to be nice. For the most part they take in all my friends like their own kids. I pay for everything I have including my truck, insurance, gas, cell phone, credit cards and whatever else I may need (including food)

Cudos to those of you that take care of your parents! :)

As for the rest of everyone living at home, move out!
Out of High School = Off Mom's tit

I stayed at home for three months after (HS) graduation, but moved out as soon as my first semester of college started. Haven't looked back since. My mom wasn't THAT strict on me or anything, but I was just ready to start making it on my own.
