As long as his/her mom didn't mind, i think there's nothing to worry. In some families, their parents want to keep close with their children on their olden day. Especially if they have only one child. The worst is if his/her lives at mom's home but without working. It's totally embarrassing as a 29 years old child. Have a nice day and happy mylotting.

I think they if they are comfortable in that situation and the mother is happy to have them there, then there is nothing wrong with it. As long as the situation is mutually beneficial, it shouldn't matter to anyone else. If the 29 year old is using it to avoid responsibility or the mother is using the situation to stop her child from living a whole life - that is something that only they can work out.

Depends if its a big house then I say no. But this economy is pretty bad and its tough to make money and buying an apartment could mean you will spend your entire paycheck just to pay the rent. Wich is why im in no rush to move out of my parents house even though if I had the money I probally would since it would be easier to bring girls to your apartment then it is to your house.

I am 27 years old and still living with my mom. I don't think it's a bad thing at all. First of all, growing up doesn't mean time to abandon our parents. My dad already pass away two years ago and my mom live with my younger siblings. I don't think it's a bad idea to stay with her and help her taking care of the young ones. It's a good thing for me, my mom never control my money or date. I can choose what I want to do, she only give a piece of advice if she doesn't approve it.
