Traditionally, when people get married they should have their own home and be separated with their respective families. But in some cases wherein couples still tend to live with their parents, does it affect the relationship? decision making? whta about privacy for the couple? For married couple, do you stil live with your parents? what are the advantages and disadvantages?

i think there are more disadvantages when living with parents. the couple can not grow as parents for the other members in the house can affect their decission making. when i was still living with my husband. we live in his parents house. then when he and his mom had a quarrel he will ask me if we can stay for the mean time at my parents house.

I think when a girl is married she will have to live with her husband and strat new life of own but in some case the girl have some problem of her parents they should not hesitate to help the parents but should live the life of own choice and adjust according her in-laws.we should not ignore the parents as well as in-laws and life should the combination of happniess.

Well sometimes we can't avoid the trouble between in-laws when we lived together with them. You can't do whatever you want inside the house because you worried about in-laws and they always be involved in our decission makings, specially for thier grand kids and on thier husband , if your in-laws hate you it's really hard to get along with them. I am married and we are separated from my in-laws. Just lucky that my husband got a house before we get married. Being apart from them is a good thing for us, we have our own privacy and i can do whatever i want without my in-laws supervision.

well when i first got married we had to live with my in laws, it was because we couldn't afford our own place at fist. the dsadvantage was we couldn't have too much alone time, and they were always in our business. the advantage was we saved money, and had a baby sitter to help us out

We used to live in my parents' house but they're not there 6 days of the week because my Dad works somewhere else. So, it's almost like we're living on our own. But, we recently moved to a new apartment and it's really different when you're not under the roof of your parents. For me, it is a learning experience and I'm glad we moved out. Well, it is much expensive to live on your own but at least I can make decisions without having to consider what my parents would think. Having a family means you have to learn how to make good decisions on your own and when you're out of your parents' wings, you are able to do that and more.

the way i see it if they live with their parents is that they are not ready or mature enough to be a responsible parent.living with the in-laws is quite difficult because you have to be nice to them even if you really dont wanted to because you live in their household.you have to help them so that they wont think bad of you.they will have the right to spoil your kids and protect when you scold them.too many stories have been told about living with the in-laws and only a handful of them gives positive reaction...so i think its much better to be independent and make your own family and not rely on them
