I myself is a fan of nuclear family. I don't see anything bad of joint-family but I am a kind of person who would like a peaceful individualistic and private life. As you know, the more people living under the same roof, the more problems would come after certain ages, maybe because of the different lifestyle, or life principal, or maybe because of the generation gaps. I love my family, and I love my parents, but it doesn't mean I have to live with them under the same roof. i could come to my parent's house as often as I like, but we could set a bolder boundaries between MY family and MY PARENT's family. I think that is better for me.

I don't think that the labels really matter. You can be a nuclear/joint family and have either good or bad experiences in being in a family like that. It's more of the quality of the relationships and how close everyone is to one another that matters. Labels are just labels.
