I'm married and have my own house with my husband, but every time I visit my parents I describe it as I'm going home. Is it bad that I do this or is it normal for the first few years? I've heard of the expression "home is where the heart is," and it's really got me wondering if my heart isn't lining up right or something.

I doubt you'll only feel this way for the first few years. It's where you were raised. My mother has been in America for 16 years and when she goes overseas she still describes it as visiting her home.1

Do you feel as comfortable in your house with your husband as you do at your parents' house? I wouldn't like it if my boyfriend and I were married and he said that to me when going back to his parents' house. It would make me feel like he wasn't settled with me or was having issues feeling independent. Unless we were married and staying in an apartment or something temporarily, then I wouldn't want him to say that.1
