Chinese similarities, Greek families have always depended on grandparents for helping to raise the ...

you do not have your parents in order to raise your children only .You have them because you love them and you want to give them company.If you want to have them only to raise your children you can have them in a different house or live in their houses and take the children there or have them as visitors.All the above situations may happen.
I really    love China,半个 中国 人

No,

My Father lives alone in his house he is nearly 90.

Fortunately he is able to look after himself very well, AND still drives

However, if or when the time comes he can't look after himself we will make sure he goes in to a decent Old Peoples Home.

haha, this is great. I have had a lot of discussions with my parents on this topic at home ............

I asked them the question "why didn't they choose to live together with my grandparents" ............ they all live in the same county ........... emotionally they are close to each other ........... but they don't like the idea of living together ...... personality clashes under one roof can be quite destructive ........ both my parents and their parents are quite indepdent type of persons ......... once they get together for a long time, they argue ....... Looks like the practical solution  (they have already done this) is to keep them at certain distance while maintaining contact (buying food, medical care, shopping etc).

So I asked my parents "Consider this type of relationship between you and your parents, how do you expect the relationship between you and me will develop"? .......... the general agreement is they accept that I am living far away ........ i talk to them frequently on the phone ...... I provide solutions to their problems ....... once in a while I visit them. they are happy so am I .........
