My 26 yo and 22 yo boys still live at home. My 28 yo son and 23 yo daughter don't. Is it selfish of me that I want the boys to stay until I check out?

I love him and he's no problem...but I am afraid if he doesn't decide to move he is going to lose a wonderful young woman. Maybe I can tell him to get out and let her move in. Tongue

Well, I left home just as soon as I could - married at 18 (mistake) and was out of their home for a little over 10 years - then I left the mistake of a husband and had to move back in with my parents for financial reasons. I've only been back home with them since December of 2013 but jesus christ it feels like it's been forever. I did not plan on being out here this long. I (stupidly) thought I'd only have to be back home for about 6 months or so. Facepalm

My brother, though - he'll turn 30 in December and has never left home and shows no signs of leaving anytime soon, either. Tongue I don't get it. He's single and has no children and has a decent job. There is no reason he couldn't have left by now if he really wanted to. I can only conclude that he does not really want to leave.

You charging him rent? If he's got an economic incentive to stay you're gonna need a crowbar to winkle him outta there. Maybe charge him more Big Grin

Why he got to move out? They can share a room. Me and Manly and BabyGirlyBoy lived with my family until Girly got his financial footing. And then they moved in with me later after they lost their financial footing. Many other cultures value the concept of a nuclear family far more than the US does. Some sorta "Go forth and conquer" manifest destiny bullshit is all I can figure.

Marrying at 18 was not the mistake. Manly and Girly was married when she was 18 some 30 years ago now. Who you married was the mistake.

You're absolutely right. I stand corrected. Smile
