It all depends upon why the older single man (or woman) lives at home. Especially since the disaster that is the plandemic, there is the problem of having enough money to live. I personally know of three situations where single adult or near adult children who’d normally be either moved out on their own, actively seeking to marry and establish their own home, or seeking a suitable spouse, are instead, staying home and working to keep their parents, grandparents, and siblings from homelessness or dependent upon the government. A nephew and a niece quit high school, for now, at least, to keep their handicapped mother and three elementary school-aged siblings in their apartment and food on the table. “Dad” abandoned the family in 2014, and he never really supported them monetarily or otherwise. He owes over 100K in child support, if he anyone can locate him. Another nephew has put college on hold under similar circuмstances. He can’t attend in person without the jabs, and he can’t graduate without certain in person classes and an internship. The way things are looking, he will be unable to make a career in the medical field, ever. His younger brother is autistic and his divorced mother has been unable to find employment due to health and age issues. She is a brittle diabetic, age 63.
The idea that a man must have a good job to support a wife and growing family, a house, a vehicle, no debt before he can marry, for the present time, is completely unrealistic for the majority of Catholics I know. If marriage and childbearing are to continue then standards (set by a priest I know), will need to be lowered. Women may have to move in with extended family and/or work for income at least until the birth of a baby is near. It may come down to having to share a large rental with a sibling’s or friend’s family—-or forgo marriage and children.
Just be careful before judging a single adult living with Mom or Dad. The world is a very different place than it was only two decades ago. Families, even those of Traditional Catholics, are splintered than ever. Many Tradcats are one-of-a-kind; not raised in tradition, and not having a social support network to fall back upon. Many don’t have a regular or reliable source of Mass and Sacraments. Some young adults have tried to follow the long established path, Catholic school/homeschool, college or post high school training, seeking one’s state of life—religious or marriage, and found the path obliterated. Seminaries gone modernist or closed, careers closed due to near proximity to sin or a lifetime of debt, potential spouses few and far between, or none at all. Not knowing what to do or where to go, people in their 30s and 40s, even older, end up back “home.”
