lol theres no such thing. if you're embarrassed by it just change the story like most adults do now - say 'they're living with ME'

haha thats what my dad did. we're asian so naturally like most asians he lived with his parents after marriage. and then when he started to get embarrassed by it he'd always say 'this is my house and when my parents got old i told them to move in with me'. lol

I moved out at 16 but I think anything over 23+ is too old and if you are 23+ years old still living with your parents, you should probably reevaluate.

My honest opinion with no sugarcoating:

Past 18 it starts getting a tiny bit odd
Past 21 is bad
Past 25 is awful
Past 30 and you’re likely a child in an adult body

Obvious exceptions if you’re a caregiver to parents or similar.

I mean who cares? there is people who live with parents until 30 for all sorts of reasons..oh it’s “weird” so I’ll just move out by myself and spend thousands a month or whatever depending on what you rent and location..never heard such shite in my life, if you’re in a relationship then you want to move out but you need a reason to.. so if you’re dating or need the space etc so pretty much move out when you need to not because oh I’m 23 now I must move out or it’s weird...I’m 20 and still live with my parents and single so what reason do I have to move out yet? 0 reason and would be a waste of money, if I got into a relationship of course I would move out as then it makes sense and obviously would be weird, most move out before 23 because they want to feel like they’re progressing in life and jump on the band wagon but that’s their choice, to me it’s just a number nobody cares about and depending on if you should move out depends on relationships, work, stuff like that ✌️

I don't think there is a set answer to this because there may be cultural reasons for people to live in multi generational families or there may be financial reasons for doing so.

People should just do what works best for them and not worry about what other people think about their living arrangements

23 and up. I just think it’s weird and childish to want to stay under your parents roof past that age. Unless you’re taking care of them and they’re unable to live by themselves or the other way around.

I think you shouldn’t judge people for their living arrangements. You need to be more open minded about the variety of reasons this could be because and respect that

I still live with my parents and I'm 26 (I'm disabled, my mum looks after me). My brother didn't move out til he was 29 because of how his then girlfriend/finances family did things (cultural reasons). Tbh, people need to not be so judgemental. It doesn't matter in the grand scheme of things.

I moved at 17 and it worked for me, past 20 it starts looking a little off. But as others have said, living situations vary. I nearly moved back in with my Mum last year, simply because she would have needed the help. *shrug*

Why?
There may be many reasons why people still live with their parents past that age. As well as the cultural side of it (in some cultures it's normal to have 2 or 3 generations in the same house), some people can't afford to move out by then.
I finally moved out last year (I was 28). But I'd been saving up for a house for ages. I was buying a house on my own and wanted to save up a decent deposit. I wasn't going to move out before and spend god knows how every month on rent.

thanks.

Tbh, thinking about it my dad probably would've had words to say about it (my dad's middle eastern), but my brother was more than happy to stay a little longer here to save up a decent deposit for when he moved out when he got married, so worked out for him.

We're really talking about 2 things really, staying under a parents roof is one thing, staying under their thumb with no experiences of your own is another.
