More Adult Children in the US Living with Parents

★★★summary★★★

In the United States, lots of young adults are living at home with their parents.

Researchers found that 32 percent of 18-to-34-year-old Americans lived at their parents’home in 2014.
That is the highest percentage nationwide since 1940.

More young adults lived at home with their parents than lived with a husband, wife, or partner in 2014. In that year, 31 percent were married or living with a partner — half what it was in 1960.

The 21-year-old,at this age,students graduate from a college, would like to get a job and save money for graduate school. If they live at home with their parents,they can live with no or low rental payments. This will enable them to save money or pay down loans.

★★★opinion★★★

Some people have a trouble with paying off their large scholarship after they graduated the college in Japan too. This is a big social problem nowadays in Japan.

I think living apart from our family means we can be more free and comfortable. Because if we do it, we have to mind only our selves. It needs responsibility but it will connect with being independent. Without our parents, we have to do all things by our selves. I think this is a good thing but the first thing they have to do is to pay down loans. It cannot be avoided. Living with parents can save money. After the completion of the payment is in sight, they can choose living alone or living with parents.

I supposed American become independent more and earlier than Japanese. They recognize the importance of individualism. So I was surprised at this article and results of the resarch. But this means they understand priorities first.
