Before we did that. We lived at my wife's mother but then she passed away already so we were forced to live on our own. Why we decided to live with her? I guess she is all alone in the house and I guess she could not manage herself being alone so when her daughter got married I guess that was part of the package we have to bring her in too. But it was short live since she passed away three years ago. Now we can better manage ourselves and learn to live independently already. We still are renting house as we too could not afford to buy one.

Now we live together with my parent-in-low,the whole family is lively.But as you known,when we live together with my paren-in-low,there are always having some problems such as different ideas, taste etc.And now ,i have no need to cook by myself, i always think that i need to learn how to be independent and depend on my parent-in-low all the time.

Yes that is true your independence is really limited at that point. Especially if your living with other members of the family. you would always have to blend in with them or they will not like you at all. So I guess you have to aim for your family's own identity and living out with them is the best option although it is not that easy at all since you have to manage it all by yourself. Right now the advantage of it is that you likely do not bother about family security since you belong to a big family and feel secured being in it. When you are all by yourselves then you will realize this too. There are good and bad points in it as well as the other option you just have to weigh which is best for the two of you.

I once before was living with my parent-in-low. After I bought a house, I move out and live in my own. Usually when we bought a house, we paid 10% out of the house prise as a deposit. So I know how much Should I save for my house deposit.
