Its normal if they are divorced, have kids, paying child support, etc.... or if their parents are old and they need to stay home to take care of them.

But otherwise... 40+ years old and still living at home with mom and dad = Loser


correct?

    I'd say yes, you're a loser for living at home with your parents if you can live on your own. It's an easy way out of life, I know a man who's 44 living with his mother and she still babys him. She nurtures him when sick, makes all his meals, shops for him etc

    I see nothing wrong with living with your parents at any age. I hate living alone. It's boring and lonely. And I'd hate for my parents to live alone as well.

    Nope. He works and 🤬 too, she still does everything for him. She bought him his 2010 Shelby Mustang, in which he lost to my wife's mother in their recent divorce.

    Unless you taking care of your elderly parents that can't take care of themselves, living at home at 40 shouldnt be exceptable.

    i know a few ppl like that and they are the most pathetic, sad excuses for grown men.

    most of them even have the money to move out, they just don't want to. Mommas boy at 40+ years old. They're all miserable, but can't be bothered to leave the nest.

    In some cases it"s pathetic. You get a pass only if either one of your parents died and the other half needs someone to get over the passing,or if both parents are sick but it's a pass only if you have a good job and set money wise!!!

    case by case scenario..

    life doesn't always go the way we want.....bad decisions happen, and reality can be an awfully humbling experience....

    as long as you're not a burden on the people you're living with, it doesn't matter who you stay with, whether it's family, friends, parents, or random roomates...

    wherever you are as long as you take care of yourself i can't see how you're a loser...

    It depends on the person family situation. You cant really judge without looking inside of the book properly.
