      I'd be happy to stay rent free with parents.

      Sometimes it’s better to pick freedom over money

      That’s disgusting to live with your parents. Do you invite women over to your parents house? How do you expect that situation to play out? Are you celibate?

      Honestly that suggests pretty bad relationship with your parents if you hate living with parents so much.
      Different priorities : I'd rather save on rent and retire sooner, at least till I'm single

      American spotted. It's not disgusting to live with your parents, it's fairly common in the rest of the world and your neighbor to the south.

      I wouldn’t say it’s disgusting to live with your parents and rather it’s all about what you want from life vs what your parents want for you. If your parents don’t agree with you, then it’s better to have your own place to save the mental space from arguments and fights. Being Indian or American doesn’t matter so instead focus on the things that will make your life happy and of the people around you.

      It didn't seem that way (also since you edited out part of your earlier response). Anyway..

      In general, I do think Indian culture is primitive on most aspects

    Why do you tell your parents about your spending habits?

    But I'll agree with your parents on this. Personally, I don't understand the point on spending on luxuries.
    If you really need to, move out on the pretext of moving closer to work

      Looking for “prestige” and trying to buy it.

      You can probably make a case that you're saving time and money living closer to work. And because time is money, you're saving money and money.

      Nothing wrong with liking nice things. Prefer a nice house and sexy car myself.

      There's a difference between comfortable living like a comfortable life, and luxuries
      Personally, I don't understand craving for the former

    How old are you? Are you living with your parents? Why do you tell them what you spend your money on?

    Also, TC?

    Maybe make an explicit arrangement with parents and follow through. Like you two can agree that you'll save 50% of your tc, and what you do with the rest is up to you. If you cannot agree on a number, and this is important enough for you, consider moving out.

      Parents say what is good in their opinion, which may not be what is good for you!
      I'm can't believe you believe in "for your own good" lol!
      That said, on this one, I feel the OP must check his spending habits. I don't see the point of spending on luxuries.
