Nope! 🙂 You’re never too old. 

My sister’s 28 now – she still lives here. My 22 year old brother and I (19 and a half) live here, too. You’re never too old, don’t worry. ❤

33yo here checking in, got a brother 3 years my junior and we’re both living with the parents. The four of us are currently looking for a nice 3 bedroom house to move into when Mom retires in a few years. Every person is different, and every family unit is different. Find what works and don’t bother listening to people who don’t know your situation, basically.

37 year old checking in here.  My parents and my uncle have properties that share a fence.  (My Uncle’s house is one of the two houses my mother grew up in.)  I lived on my own from the time I was 27 until I was 32 and an injury (and consequent loss of income) forced me to move back home.  I still live with my Uncle, with my parents across the backyard, and all four of us eat dinner together whenever we can.  And, don’t get me wrong, I loved having my own place, but you know what?  What I have now is kind of amazing, too, especially because my Uncle isn’t young and he’d otherwise be living alone.  But because he has lived alone a decent portion of his life, he respects my privacy and I respect his, but neither of us is alone unless we want to be, and that’s pretty great.  ^_^  Also, my former neighbor is about 30 years older than I am and moved back in with her parents when she was in her late 40s, early 50s, and lived with them until they both passed away.  You’re never too old to live with your family, whether they be your spouse/children, your parents, extended family, or found family.  You’re doing just fine.  ^_^
