I know exactly what everyone is saying here. I am 25 years old, bought my first "starter home" at 21 right our of college, have been married for 2 years, saved to build our new home and moved in this past June, and we are now expecting our first son.
I have friends who still rely on their parents for everything. Most have just moved out of their parents in the last couple of years. Most of them have nicer cars and clothes and can take vacations more often because they have no responsibility. However, I do not get jealous because I know that I paid for everything and made my own way without any money from my parents. It feels good to be independent when I see everyone else running to mommy when they need something.
