You'd go down a treat in China, nomad. First flight home, methinks.

As I said, many Poles who want to live beyond the breadline should live with their parents and pay minimal rent. That would free up some cash for other things. Leaving the nest is hard sometimes and money doesn't grow on trees.

I'd go. but, i know china isn't different than europe in that sense i mentioned in my previous post.. in china too, as in europe, heirdoms usually left to sons rather than daughters. you can say there is law about sharing heirdoms equally. then, how comes 90% of world capitals including houses in china, in europe, in usa, etc are owned, on their names of males? so, if it is communism, europe, usa etc too are communists.. if it is capitalism, then, china too is capitalist.. ps: socialism in my mind has never lived. polish lady can do this.

Why pay rent?Rent prices have increased due to immigration.Living with parents is a viable option.And let's not forget that older generation created this ''heaven'' for the 700 euro generation.

All the old ones brag how competent they were and how many hardnesses they had to cope up with but the reality is quite different.When we get to power they will receive pensions of 300 euro per month this is their worth.

As for the descendants who become great scientists and inherit their parents' clientelle they are in for a big surprise.We talk about total collapse.(no the middle class has not saved their asses yet).

Many Polish adult males live with parents

A new report from Eurostat shows that 44 percent of Polish men aged 25-34 are reluctant to move out of their family home. One in three young Polish women in this age bracket live with their parents. Scandinavians are the most inclined to go off on their own.

What are the pluses and minuses of each option?

Im not surprised who wants to go live in the big bad world and take monumental shite on a daily basis for the rest of their lives. Many Poles cant afford to go it alone anyway. For the record my two Polish brothers in law left in their early 20's.

I flew the nest officially at 24 but then again i was only there a few months of the year for many years before hand.

Poles are really family minded. I know lots of families that builds houses not only to house them selfs but also grandparents etc etc

One of my relatives actually build a house for them and a house for their parents where their son also lives with his girlfriend.

In today's Daily Mail there is an article quoting how many young women - 18-34 live by themselves & how many young men still stay at home.

So the situation repeats itself in many countries.

It's all part of the boomerang generation.

And the root cause of that is.....

...excessive debt as a result of schooling?
...failed relationships?
...lack of individual survival skills?
...lack of job opportunities?
...cost of living?
...lazyness?
...other?

Being closeted from real world realities

Not realising how dependent they were before they left the nest in the first place

A mix of the above factors that you mentioned too. It depends on the case.

Why can't Poles get their own place?

because it's expensive? Believe me they don't want to live with their parents.

Why are the other 80% leaving their poor mothers?

beacuse they are in their 30s, 40s, 50s, 60s, 70s, 80s, 90s???

I moved out and had to move back home, due to... debt, failed relationships, lack of job opportunities meaning it is taking a long time to pay off enough debt to then move away and look for jobs. Now I've enough money but the lack of jobs continues, so it could be a while before I get a job where I want to move to and so get to move out again.

The family unit is stronger here so it is to be expected that more people still live with their families.

There are also positive sides to mutligenerational cohabitation otehr thank financial savings. These could include more opportunities to enjoy family togetherness and solidarity, never lacking a 4th for bridge, more frequent common family dinners, someone to consult and rely on when facing problems, built-in child-minders and having ageing parents close at hand when they are no longer as fit as they one were and require looking after.

Really, who plays bridge anymore?

Pol3, you talk of the merits of cohabitation yet you seem to diss those that do so but don't get married. Why can't you apply the same standards?

That's like comparing apples and soap. I am more interested in who plays bridge anymore.

I sometimes buy apple soap, Shawny :)

The principle is the same :)

No it aren't.

Unless by intergenerational cohabitation, Pol3 means shacking up with a cougar.....

By the way, is euchre popular in Poland?

Cohabitation has many benefits as he said and that applies across the board. I can see that and he couldn't. That's what I was getting at.

Euchre??

Cohabitation has many benefits as he said and that applies across the board.

But he referred specifically to multigenerational cohabitation, and not the type of sinful cohabitation that leads to the downfall of society. You and I may see the benefits in the latter, but that doesn't ring true to P3.

Never heard of Euchre?
Seanus 15 | 19,706

I know but he can't see the commonalities, we can. There is nothing sinful in cohabiting til the time is right to marry. I did that for 2.5 years.

Euchre, no

I don't know why everybody assumes it is easier living with your parents. Great majority of those I know that cannot live with their parents is because of their inability to get along, to compromise, respect others and be accountable for their behaviour at home. And great majority of parents that want their kids out is because they realize they raised selfish pricks and it's too late and too hard for them to undo the damage. It's easier for them to learn through the school of hard knocks, on their own.

What about those that got kicked the hell outta their home, my Dad would have kicked me out anyway if i hadnt left back in the day. The ironic thing is they now live under my roof.

What goes around comes around: at some point caring children look after their parents when they get old. Hell, i hope my little girl looks after me when im an old useless fart.

Poles dont put their elders in nursing homes do they? That's a thread!!

It's easier for them to learn through the school of hard knocks, on their own.

Ahh the old university of life, weve all done time served in that one.

And in some's eyes, that would only be true if nothing sinful or carnal is going on.

Euchre is a wonderfully strategic game played by four with partners sitting opposite of each other. Cards used are the 9, 10 ,J ,Q, K & Ace. 5 cards dealt to each player, the 4th last card is flipped up, and starting to the right of the dealer each player can order the dealer to pick it up, thus making the partner of the dealer to try to win the hand alone. You make one point if the team can win 3 of the "tricks", or two points if the team wins all 5 tricks. If the one player goes it alone (without the aid of the partner) and wins all 5 tricks, you win 4 points. If all players pass on the card placed face up, the player to the right of the dealer can call a suit which he feels that he and his / her partner could win a point.

First to score 10 points wins the game.

I lived with my parents untill I found a wife. That the only resonable thing to do.
Why anyone would want to live all alone? I married somewhat late, and could afford a flat much earlier, but to what end?

To test the water? how can you bring a gal back and have screaming slapping sex with the parents upstairs. Ohh the looks in the morning from your parents...... the old i know what you were doing last night - look.

Living with your parents at those party ages really limits you IMO. I mean what if you want to snort a big fat line of coke off the table?
