This whole modern idea "independence" is running on a time limit. For the majority of history, households were multi-generational. Young men in the West are feeling this crunch first but eventually we're going back to that traditional way of life for everyone. No more sex-and-the-city lifestyle, bitches.
The wealth boom and highest quality of life in America was due to the following events in history:
Many of the post-WWII generation up until the mid-1980s enjoyed relative economic hegemony. Europe and Asia were heavily destroyed in WWII so America has industrial superiority. America was also on the international gold peg up until 1970 when Nixon took it off, silver was actual currency up until the end of 1964, China only began to open up in 1970 after Nixon's visit. Most of Eastern Europe was either part of the USSR or Yugoslavia (communists) and China was also communist and they did not really trade with America or allow private ownership and were not open to foreign corporations. This allowed the US to have economic superiority. That superiority vaporized with time. Once silver currency ended, and the international gold peg was ended after Nixon took the dollar off of the gold peg, then that's when they could produce unlimited fiat currency and begin the largest credit bubble in history that continues to this day. At the beginning it gave everyone a massive boost to their wealth and living standards but it's fleeting because debt and fiat currency ultimately create poverty, lower living standards, and the destruction of an economy. So with the end of the major communist powers, the the rebuilt industrialization of Europe and Asia, lowered tariffs, free-trade, pure fiat currency, a massive credit bubble that is still continuing, among other things, America began a slow decline of it's living standards and wealth since the mid to late 1980s.
Feminism: With women taking the jobs away from men, this has destroyed the income potential for men. With the addition of women to the workforce, the need for men and the respect for men in Western society was destroyed. Women are the favored group and generally earn much higher pay than men especially since they have higher rates of employment, better jobs, and an easier time getting employment.
I'm sure there's more but I mentioned enough.
America is a collapsing empire. The United Kingdom, the European Union, and Japan will also collapse with America because of their debt and failed fiat currencies. Russia and China will also collapse. Russia because the wealthy and oligarchs in Russia have put the property values out of touch with the actual income of most Russians and because of their reliance on oil (with the world ultimately resisting fiat currency and massive credit expansion by seeing oil fall, it means the true economy is actually collapsing). China will also collapse because their property values aren't what people can afford and if America and Europe collapse, then China collapses because their two largest export markets go down with them. If the dollar, pound, euro, and yen all collapsed like dominoes, then every nation's four major reserve currencies would be destroyed. Such an event would effect every nation on the planet no matter how large or how small, or how rich or poor. Most of their foreign exchange reserves would be worthless. Only gold and silver would really be left standing.
Gold and silver have been rising at their fastest pace since they were first charted in the 1970s or 1980s. Silver is up 50% since it's low point around nine months ago.
The Economist Magazine in 1988 predicted a new world currency to arise from the ashes of the major world currencies. Using occult and illuminati symbolism. The cover was a phoenix on a pile of burning paper currency, with a fleur de lis symbol as it's crown, and a gold coin to the side with the words "ten phoenix" 1988 with a zero/o with a slash as the main symbol on the gold coin. So either they plan on crashing the four major currencies and reinstating a gold and silver based currency (allowing history to repeat itself, reducing most of America into poverty status since most Americans don't own gold and the government likely loaned or leased or sold all its gold and silver to the banks who sold it out to suppress the prices and keep the prices low, or are hoarding it themselves to come out standing again after the economic reset).

Automation has eliminated the need for a lot of human labor. Many jobs have been outsourced. Baby boomers often can't retire and continue to work.
Tuition is so high that education is not really affordable.
This is why a lot of people live at home with their parents well into their 30's. Who can blame them?
"When I think about the idea of getting involved with an American woman, I don't know if I should laugh .............. or vomit!"
"Trying to meet women in America is like trying to decipher Egyptian hieroglyphics."
I know people from my high school years who still live with their parents. Its a lot more common than you think.
Theres nothing wrong with living with your parents if:
1. You are saving money to go abroad. If so why waste money on rent in America?
2. You and your parents get along and help each other out to mutual benefit. Some families are closer than others.
3. You are doing something productive or have a steady job and income.
In Asia its common to live with your parents even in adulthood as long as you have a job. Or you are helping the family business. Even married couples sometimes live with parents. This happens in Russia too.
Even in America this happens sometimes too. For example, Donald Trumps sons and daughters probably live close to him or in the family mansion with trump and his wife. Thats because they all work for donald trumps business and company and help manage it. So they need to stay close together. Families that run a business together will usually stay close together or live together. That's true even in America.
