i'm from a nuclear family.i really think that though joint family has its own advantages its better to settle for nuclear families.

in nuclear families itself u can find disaccord between the members, so just imagine how it would be in a joint one! when its just four or so people that you are living with you can let down your guard and be yourself. but when you are part of a large family you always have to be on your guard.
i defenitely prefer nuclear family.

I live in Joint family! I'ts nice everyone is there to share sorrows and everyone is there to share happiness.

And as said, sharing happiness increases it while sharing sorrows decrease them!

Although a joint family system has its advantages like you always have company , one doesn't have to worry about leaving children in a empty house. And many others .But has its huge disadvantages too .

 one needs their space as an adult . As an adult you start getting set in your own ways , and beliefs . Being in a large family sometimes it clashes and thats distructive for a relationship. Also as an adult its time for you to start getting responsible for your own life instead of still being semi dependant on your parents.

And living separately does not mean you love your parents less or will be irresponsible towards them . Infact , you will build a stronger relationship with them.You continue to meet up , care for them and be there at the drop of a hat in their hour of need .

I personally prefer living independantly . I would have gone mad if i had to live with either set of parents !! Meeting them during holidays is just perfect !Wacko

Yet another good topic

Ok, what does a joint family really mean? People living under the same roof. Then no thanks. But a joint family is much more than that. A joint family teaches you many things like, loving each other, caring for each other, doing things together, being there for each other. It is not only a group of people who care for each other, but those who are ready to give up things if required to stay together.

Today every corporate talks of sharing, team work. These are basics a joint family teaches a child. In todays age, people want joint families only when convinient.

On the other hand, a neuclear family teaches you to be confident and self sufficient most of the times. But at the cost of the love and care of others in the family.
