    How old is too old to be living with your parents?

    I understand we all may from time to time have to move back in with our parents, but only to get back on our feet and then we move out and live on our own; right?
    I have a sister that lives off of our parents, along with her teenage son. She is 52 years old and been there for 3 years now, she has a good job and if she helped them out I think it would be different, but she does nothing.
    What is everyones input? Am I wrong for wondering why she won't go get her own place and stop living on people that have a fixed income.

    Well I guess it all depends on the situation, I mean it depends on if for example the person is facing a hard financial situation or there could be other psychological factors, maybe the person faced some tragedy in their life and are scared to go back to living alone or with someone who might hurt them in some way or other.

    Generally I think you should move out by the time you are planning on having a family of your own, you can't just live with your parents forever. But sure, if things somehow fall flat for you, its always ok to come back home for some life advice and mental stability in your life, if you are lacking it at that particular time.

    It depends, if you aren't helping with anything in any way and you're 30 that's messed up. If you make a living, do alot for the people you live with and your family just loves eachother and want to stay with eachother there is nothing wrong with that. Living alone doesn't make you a Man or woman.

    It's subjective of course, but I think that 25 might be a good idea to leave your parents place. If you are 35 and you are still there something is definitely wrong. :D

    I moved out when I was 20 and moved back at 24 because my ex and I split and I couldn't afford to live on my own. I'm 25 now, and I want to move out, but I still have debt to pay off, and I want to save to move out of my country. There's no sense in moving out on my own, where I'll have to pay for way more, and be able to save less, and then have to move again in a year after that. So I'm staying put for a while.

    i moved out when i was 19 but then moved back with them when i was 23. i think when you are financially independent then its time to start looking for a new place. more so if you are in a relationship with someone and want it to go somewhere. ultimately at 26 i finally left for good and have been living separately from them for the past 6 years. permanently. but there is nothing wrong with going back if you are facing some crisis or something. they are your parents.

    I moved out at 17. I know that is too early to most people, but things turned out well. I think that after 24, you have overstayed your welcome. If your parents are older, and need care, that is truly an exception.

    That is weird for a 52 years old woman, the way I see it if she is going to live there she should be helping with the rent or groceries considering she has a full time job. You never know though, she might be going through some financial problems and her parents are totally fine with her being there rent-free.

    That's what parents are for but it definitely depends on the situation. I got a friend who live with the parents but she is paying their mortgage and all that too though. Some situations people rather stay close to their kin since they are older and make sure they are ok. But for those who mooch of the parents when they can do it themselves and the parents don't need them around then it's a different story.

    Sometimes it has to do with circumstances but if you have a job and are making decent money you don't need to be living with your parents. I took care of my parents for a number of years but I never stopped wanting my own place...NEVER. If you are just living with them and not paying rent or helping out then get out.

    I think it depends,
    If you're just living at home being a leech in your 20's, you need to get out.

    But, if you're either working on your education or saving up for a home and you're parents are OK with being at home than I think that's OK. I lived at home until I think I was 25 or so, while I was saving up for a down payment on a house. My parents preferred that I didn't waste money on rent.
