    Actually, it has everything to do with the original question. Which was NOT "who pays for your car?" it was "How did you afford it?".
    It's really not the same thing.

    I used to point this out to the teens and tweens on here that mistakenly believe that they're independent, though their parents are still picking up most of the tab for their life. Go be the sole income earner for a family, and then we'll talk about "paying for everything".

    I'm surprised at how many people out there are in their mid-late 20's (or older), and are still living with the 'rents. It's time to leave the nest, little birdies.

    I wish I still lived with the rents....The ride would be a 09 Z06 vette....instead I'm stuck with bills and misery.

    I disagree with that statement, in some circumstances.

    I live with my parents, but I pay rent, groceries, cable/internet, electricity, cell phone, tuition, student loans, health/dental insurance, car payment, gas, and car insurance.

    Not everyone who lives with their parents is a mooch

    My in-laws lost everything about four years ago. They have lived with us ever since. In fact for the first several years we gave them $1000 spending money monthly, paid for 100% their health insurance, car, cell phone, phone, cable... everything. They still live with us (at no charge) today.

    My point is that I understand your sentiment. Still though, Ray didn't say that EVERYONE that lives with their parents is a mooch. I think you may have just read it that way. Perhaps you are sensitive to that insinuation. idk.

    Nobody is calling you a mooch. You may pull your own weight, but trust us, it's nothing compared to pulling ALL of the weight. I used to feel like you......then the real world came and slapped me upside the head!

    Just a few of my monthly bills for the wife and I.....

    Rent - $1300.
    Electric - $120.
    Water & sewer - $50
    Cel phones - $135
    Cable - $135
    Food - $600
    Car insurance - $125
    Heat - $Ha ha
    Tuition for the wife - $1600

    Roughly $900 a week without any entertainment, fuel, lunches during the day, heat, hookers and blow...etc..etc.

    Now, what were you guys saying?

    Many people choose to live with the parents to avoid paying other costs (and I agree with your post about people paying for "everything" while all the other costs are covered, TheJ). For me, it makes financial sense to give my parents rent, which in turn helps them retire earlier, rather than some landlord I could care less about.

    Bad wording on my part - I know that Ray wasn't calling everyone who lives with their parents a "mooch", but I was just expressing that for some people, it is the best decision for them.

    I know the situation - most of my childhood was spent with my grandfather living with us in a similar fashion, only it was because he couldn't take care of himself, and we didn't want to put him in a home. You've mentioned before that you have kids, and I can't tell you the value of having family be close with you growing up. There's a lot to be said about what you're doing, bud

    I mean no disrespect, but I believe that it's important for the kids to leave the home and make their own way in the world, regardless of how inconvenient or financially demanding it may be. As long as you live with Mom, she's going to be "Mom" and take care of a million little details, financial, logistical, whatever, that you're largely unaware of. Someday the parents will be gone, and the kids involved need to be able to deal with life on their own. I believe that it's going to be a much tougher world for those that didn't jump out there and make their way during their adolescence. "Avoiding paying those other costs" means you lack experience in handling those things. That's not good, as an adult, IMO.

    I guess I get confused, because I (and nearly everyone I grew up with) had a natural desire to be completely independent of the household where I was raised. It's hard for me to relate to the notion of just staying on with my parents indefinitely.

    Again, no disrespect meant. Just different world views, I guess.
