This is for both guys and girls: Do you prefer to live with your parents after marriage, or be on your own? How important is it for you to be in touch with them?
Some people don't like to have controlling in-laws, so is that the only reason for moving out?
There are advantages too. Especially, in case you have kids, grandparents can be of great help, and generally, they can be a great moral support.

I don't know where you're from, but in America it's traditional for you to already have moved out and to be on your own feet (at least the guy has to be) before you even THINK about proposing.
I know in Hispanic culture this is different though (I think their way of thinking is your parents took care of you and raised you, now it's your turn to do the same for them kinda thing).
Usually in America if you live with your parents after you're married you're seen as a deadbeat (most Americans don't take care of their families like Hispanics & Asians do so if you see an American living with their parents they're usually still depending on them and not the other way around). Most Americans don't visit their parents every weekend, but every 2 weeks-once every 3 months is normal I think.
It's a cultural thing though. I voted "Other" I'll probably see my mom once every 6 weeks or so. When I was a kid I only saw my grandparents 3-4 times a year. I want my kids to see theirs much more often, but I don't want my mom to try to control me at the same time0
