Hello! I live in London but I am from Pakistan . In my country mostly people live in joint family .I love to live with parents . But after getting married it's not a good experience . It depends on everyone's circumstances .

Oh, I would like to leave alone but in my motherland it's unpossible, because here girls live with their parents until they'll be married and after that we must to live with his parents, so I prefer to live with my parents to the end :)))))))))

Hi everybody,I'm from VietNam.

I live with my parents, but I think it isn't true, because every body who achieve the age of adulthood have to build his or her own private live independently. It doesn't mean the person have to forget his or her parents or relatives, everyone should respect parents and relatives but at the same time every body as a individual have to be able to struggle with  problems of life oneself.
What kind of living you prefer I wish you to be happy

Hello,everybody.I'm Penghao from China. In my city,the young people mostly live with parents until they get married.

Hello to everyone. I am Pedro from Spain. Now I am trying for learning English. At now I'm trying to improve my basic writing.
About the such, I prefer to live on my own because I like to feel freedom. (I don't know if you understand to me) I understand people who need to live with their parents for money reason (they don't found any job). Also people need to live with somebody, they don't like to be alone.
Thank you.
