Do you think a 45 yr. old man and a 39 yr. old woman still living at home is kind of weird?

I mean they never even tried living on their own. That is so dysfunctional I tell you.

  • hmmm...i would say if they have a good relationship with thier parents maybe they just don't see the point in moving. kinda like failure to launch.

    it is weird though.

  • Is there ANY good reason they are still there? Mom and dad in poor health, they themselves have a health problem? If not, then yeah, I would find it odd. I couldn't wait to move out of my parents house, and when I had to move back briefly, it about killed me.

  • No,no one has health problems. It's just a dysfunctional home. It's my husband's parents' home. His brother and sister still live at home and hardly give them money. Wasting their lives away.

  • Well, it obviously isnt strange to them. Some people are just home bound. They arent interested in being married or on there own. There also be some mental issues that arent apparent to those that arent close to the family. I worked with a couple sisters who were in there late 30's who lived at home with "Mother". There was actually 4 sisters all together that lived with "Mother". They had never lived anywhere else and never had boyfriends or girlfriends just each other. They were perfectly happy, a little "out there" to me. It happens........

  • My husband was 31 and still living at home when I "stole" him away LOL

    His mother did need him, he helped her escape from the abusive relationship she had with his step father. Also, he was in the process of preparing to move out when he met me and that basically got him out of there pretty well.

  • In my extended family, that's how it was done. Children did not leave home till married. I was a groundbreaker by being the first to do so.

    One of my younger cousins did live at home till she was in her 30s, but saved every penny to buy a house. And she did a lot of traveling. Her older brother and sister are still home. And as weird as it sounds, it works because their dad has MS and has been deteriorating for close to 20 years.
