Why do my parents like to live with my aunt?

I come from an immigrant family, and live in New York City, since we came to the United States, we have been living with my aunt in a very crowded apartment, my parents have jobs already, I asked them to move, and they have enough salary to pay the rent, but they refused, because they want to save money, but the conditions here are very terrible, they save so much money, for what? for what? the money is for spending, not for saving

How do you know how much money they have? Maybe they aren't here legally. Maybe they are trying to save enough money to buy a home. Maybe they are trying to save money for you for college. Who knows...but you need to respect your parents and your aunt. Be thankful you have somewhere to live...

They want to save. They went through a lot to get you to US and you should be grateful. Money isn't just for spending.

One day you'll be on your own and you'll be able to decide where you want to live. Let this be the time you spend with family because when you become an adult life gets harder and you don't have as much time with loved ones. Maybe your parents are afraid to live alone yet.

To spend less money. When I came To United States, we stayed with our Uncle. So I know. However your parents might be wanting not to take care of the rent and etc. Since its so much stress and complicated. Meaning controlling how much your spend. Including everything.

Perhaps they are saving money to send you to college; it's no use saying you don't want to go -- you seem to be still at an age when kids don't really understand what college is about or for. Or they may be saving to buy a home, which is VERY expensive these days Or they may be saving to bring other family members to the U.S. In any case, you say they save "so much money" but do you actually know how much? It may be less than you think. Money is for spending, but it is always wise to save some for the future, when conditions may change, things may go wrong, or opportunities may arise that will be missed if there is no saved money.
