    My parents have their own homes and my dad has business and properties but the thing is none of those are actually mine and I have never ask money to my parents maybe at age 16 I used to.

    I struggle like anyone else and I don't like borrowing money I would rather stay hungry and eat bread and drink water if I don't have enough money to budget.
    Are you British? The class system often looks different in other societies, although the English class system has done quite a lot of international spreading after a heavy sales drive. :teehee:

    When you are still fairly young, your class is defined a lot by that of your parents - even though you obviously don't own a lot, they do, so that elevates the kinds of opportunities, security and life chances you have access to. From your brief description, I would guess you are at least very middle class or perhaps even part of the global property owning wealthy class, we can't tell without more specifics. You certainly are not working class by the sound of it.

    Of course, other factors also play a part, like the social class your parents identify with and their educational background and the sort of people you mix with and your cultural interests and activities.
