While I believe that there are many advantages and disadvantages to both options, I think
that living with their family for as long as possible is the better option. (for young adults).
The first reason to support this view is that living with family allows young adults to have
more time for enjoyment. Nowadays people tend to work in a company or study at school
for a very long time and do not have enough time to enjoy their leisure activities. In certain
circumstances, living away from family may cause difficulties when trying to make time for
enjoyment with one’s family. In cases where a young adult moves far away from home, a lot
of time is wasted traveling to and from their new home and their family’s home. As the time
in one’s life is limited, it is better to choose the more time-efficient option. As this story
demonstrates, young adults can enjoy longer time with their parents and siblings as well as
improve their life by living with their family.
The second motive put faith on this stance is that living with their family is the more cost
efficient option for young adults. Living alone, more money will be spent in comparison to
living with one’s parents. For instance, a fridge, microwave, table, etc. are expenses that
are unnecessary when living with family. In fact, one article states that on average it costs
around $2000.00USD to start living alone. Instead of spending such a large amount of
money to move away, one can enjoy gorgeous dinner at restaurants with their friends. As
this example illustrates, living with family can save money and be used for more valuable
The third justification to rely on this claim is that young adults can help their parents when
accidents happen. The research done by Tokyo University ascertains that health conditions
significantly drop when people pass the age of 50 years old. Thus, young adults living with
their family is beneficial to their family as well. For example, from personal experience, I
have a lot of friends who regret living far away from their parents, because when their
parents became ill, nobody could help them immediately. As this experience shows, living
with family helps to avoid such possible dangers.
In conclusion, while there may be arguments to be made, either agreeing or disagreeing
with my opinion, I personally am convinced that living with family as long as possible is the
best decision for young adults.
