i believe when you start a new family, we need to move out from our parents. i know some they would need family intact together and live in the same roof. i guess there is a high chance to have in trouble with your in laws

It is really not healthy to live with extended family.

@stephjoy In some point, it is. But I think it can fix by being open to each other and discuss things up.

@Shavkat yes being open and discuss with it is good idea also. but i guess it should be moving out from your parents

A family should be father, mother, and kids. Any other person, please give me a break. When your parents in law, or your sisters and brothers in law are living with you, Dude, you have to be very very lucky to find a smile and happiness in that house...

@stephjoy no way. Thats why I am saying that a family should be the husband, the wife, and their kids. Any other person, I will pass

Mostly parents do like extended family and children want to move out... in extended family important things would be taken care of even in your absence... at the same time you cant always do what you want to do... and it is a mutual responsibility... you are taken care of and you also need to take care of others...

Well it's a very common practice in Asia. And although I don't see anything wrong with it, I personally would want my own house if I start a new family.

Extended families are not that bad.They enhance your personality. Patience, love and sense of security.

I think its okay if they can work together but that rarely happens, it is always best to be on your own
