But it was your view that Protestants feel negatively about adult children continuing to live with parents more so than members of other religions. At least you called out Protestants specifically and omitted other religions. Our acquaintances are a diverse bunch in regard to religion. Jews, Catholics, various non-Christian sects, antheists, agnostics and yes, even Protestants. We don't see much of a difference in regard to their feelings about having adult children return home. Most feel that it's OK while the child gets on his/her feet but that eventually the child should become capable of living independently.
