    I am always thinking about that how can live western people without a family safety!! I have heared that they will apart from their parents with last years of teenage. They make relations for time to time. They fly as free birds till their last. we born with family , grow with family , live with family, and die with family. I can't imagine this type of living. Here are many people in the readers as like western. This is true? I am very excited to hear you ....

      Normally, move out at 18. Build your own life with the support of family, start your own family and continue with family support and bond. I dont feel it's necessary to live with my family 24/7 as it is good to let your children fly after being taught.

        But what is the meaning of life there?  Are'nt we humanbeing?  We have a soul dear !!! Life is a river of happy and sorrow .  We experience with our family and relatives in occations of happy or bad time of us.  Soooo many values in  there. Most precious thing in life is relations. Actually we get tremendous satisfaction  from this type of life style.

      it depends on the things you are used to, and every culture is different, you just have to make the most of it.

      I am living in Switzerland since 1986. The western culture is a lot different to where i came from. I come to know more about the western culture and tradition and it really depends on the family relationship and bringing up of children to maintain the close ties. At the age of 18, children can do what they want, they have the right for it...free...sex...but i always say my door is always open for them to stay. Some parents want their children to be independent at the age of 18, that they move in their own household.
      This is a western culture which causes the decline of family intimacy. For me it is important that children move on their own way of living not until they are ready and this is very important for parents to give much support on this matter.

    Western societies were also family oriented until late into the Industrial Revolution.  Driven by commodification that made people working and buying units - and the need to control the 'masses' society has been divided against itself.

    Parents against children, men against women, races, creeds and colours against each other.

    Most of western society has no idea how they came to be such solitary divided people, putting their children into the care of other people, parents into homes, divorce, children with one parent who is not their own, introverted, pshycotic and dumbed down sheeple.

    You should enjoy your family set up as long as it lasts, such 'progress' is coming your way I am afraid.

    recommend, a lot of what you've shared is true. From what I have observed over the past few years, there is a slow reversal back to earlier times. As Baby Boomers continue to age, they are realizing more the importance of family and staying close to their grown children and grandchildren. With the economic realities taking place, families are changing what they once looked like. More young adults are living at home. Extended family are often living together. With the horrible things that take place in many nursing homes and their incredible expense, more aging parents will be taken in by their adult children.
    I do think much of it is also cultural, and there are so many multi-cultural families living in America.
