Well if it was cultural then why would it be only that one family member?
Anyway there's any number of reasons someone may live with their parents....they may suffer from mental illness, they may be there to help their elderly parents, they may all just get along really well, might be saving for their own house purchase.....I'm sure there's a heap of potential reasons why it happens.
People are so judgemental.
When I first came to America, I was shocked to see parents leaving their babies to sleep in a different room. We're talking about babies that are like 2 weeks old! They stick a baby monitor and listen to the baby from another room. It's like, they can't wait to get rid of the child after it came out! Imagine a 20 yr old kid? LOL Where I'm from, it's normal to live with your parents until you get old. You form a solid family relationship. You can leave or stay, but most prefer to stay. No judgment either way.
And you know what happens to those parents that stuck their babies in the other rooms? When they get old their grown up kids stick them in homes I think it’s weird. I’m American but my parents are immigrants. We took care of my father at home when his health failed toward the end of his life.
