What is the age that a person should move out of their parents house? I know people that are 30 and live with their parents....men and women. When do you think it's time to cut the cord and venture out on your own? Why is it easier for women to live at home than it is for men? It seems like women can do it until they get good and ready, but men are basically forced to leave once they hit 20 or so....why is that? Is a woman less of a bum if she stays at home until her 30s? Why are there so many women that stay in their parent's house....and at the same time refuse to date a man without his own place?
