    I am 23 and I am still living with my parents. I am working on getting my own place soon because I have already saved a lot of money. I have decided it was time to move out and become independent.

    Never. I mean, it's not normal for a healthy person to live with their parents forever but sometimes shit happens and you don't have any money and have nowhere else to go.

    52 is really quite old to be living in with your parents. Unless your parents are not ok with this setup, then I guess it will still continue to be that way until she finally gets a job of her own and can afford to move out.

    Mid-20s I feel is the time that most people should be living apart from their parents. Many people tend to leave much earlier than this, but once you reach mid-20s, people may feel uncomfortable coming to your house knowing that you live with your parents.

    If someone is living with their parents, I would hope they would split the bills with their parents and put some money in savings. Granted my way seems easy, but when there are children involved, things get more complicated.

    As soon as you can get out - do it. The sheer presence of your parents will be like a weight on your shoulders if you will try to do anything meaningful with your life. There are certain moments in your life when you need to scale back, but if that happens, get out of there ASAP.

    You would think and hope that the bills got split in some way. I know a few people who live with their parents in their mid-20s and they don't pay a dime or help out around the house. It's so annoying watching them do nothing with their lives and disrespect their parents at the same time.

    After 30 is too old, I lived with my parents until I was 27 only because the job I had didn't make enough money to physically be able to live in my own place, I was lucky that the next job required me to live on the site of the job so that saved me. I believe it just depends on your current situation.

    If you aren't in a special situation, 18 man.

    Better late than never? Fuck that.

    You're gonna have to step up and be a man eventually, or eventually your enablers will disown you.

    Why not start now?

    The thing here is to make your own situation, you cannot just go with the flow, or you will be anchored for life. Take a deep breath and just dive in. You can (almost) always come back again if everything falls apart.

    I believe that the right time to move out of home is when one finishes school and gets a job. In the community where I come from sons in a family inherit the land owned by their parents when they become of age. They can construct their own homes in their parentsí compound. They do not have to move out unless they want to.

    It depends on the person, but ~18 sounds about right.

    I also moved out when I was 17, but now I live with my in-laws. It's beneficial for everyone involved. I help them around the house and taking care of the ill, and they feed and house me. They are super nice! I'll be moving out once I finish school.

    I think anything at all over the age of like, 22, is too old to be living with your parents.

    This really depends on where you live. It seems like many feel like living at home when you are past 20 is unacceptable in the US, but it is becoming increasingly common in other countries. Over half of my friends live with their parents, myself included, at around 21-22. I don't see why my parents would want to kick me out and force me to take up a loan to sustain myself while going to school.
