Would you dislike a female if she was 32 and still lived with parents (until she'd saved up for a mortgage) but contributed money to pay bills? Say she had her own life/ had a part time job and was studying and kept fit/was in a running club? Would you view her as appalling/a loser or would you just be ok with it.

Not if she's saving up for a mortgage. If that's the necessary route then it's a smart decision I'd say.

Assuming you are saving with a solid plan and were living to move out asap, i dont see much of a problem with that.

I do tend to unfairly judge people who still live at home as adults, but paying your share of the bills seems perfectly reasonable to me. However, being 32 and caring what a bunch of students think about your life choices....

Where I come from that's completely normal. I don't think it should be, but it is. A very small fraction of people ever even move out of their parents' flat.
(My parents did the opposite and left the country!)

If that person is actively saving and setting up a life for themselves, I see no issue with it though. Provided it's okay with the parents.

It's quite common now for people in their 30s to still be living at home because of unaffordable rents and/or property prices. So long as you're paying your way and not living off mummy like a 12-year-old, I think it's fine. So long as it's a means to an end and not an end in itself.

That's the only important part of this entire situation, really.

I don't believe this is a problem, especially seeing that the woman is contributing to paying the bills and is currently thinking to move out. Although if she had no plans to move out then that would be a but problematic. Still, I imagine by the age of 32 people should at least be able to manage without their parents.

It's just a thing. Most people don't care. I'm a guy in my late twenties and I live at home. The manager at the shop I volunteer at is a few years older than me and also lives at home.
