50 and 63 year old brothers still living at home with their mother.

It's a recipe for poor mental health.

Yukijin, don't jump to conclusions that they are living with their mother. It could be they visited her home regarding some issue such as how to care for her and got into an argument.

Why do people think it's not natural to be living at home after a certain age? In Asian and other cultures it's quite natural.

It was the industrial revolution that started making people leave their home to become a conveyor belt operator in the big city and this destroyed the cottage industries.

There can be many benefits in multi-generational living, we only hear about the negatives
