I hear that young people in Western countries want to be independent as soon as possible because they want to show that they are already full-fledged adults.

In Japan, however, we tend to be respected if we live with our parents after we get married as long as we can take care of ourselves financially.

Of course devotion to the parents depends on the situation as everyone is different.
I believe that most Japanese couples pay part of the rent and food expenses to their parents.

An article on France I recently read said that, nowadays there are so many people over 30 who can't support themselves and live in their parents' houses.

Living in the same space they can't avoid conflict with each other and there are restrictions on their freedom. Such a conventional topic here in Japan is now common in France as well.
