Every coin has two sides and similarly every system has its advantages and disadvantages.

Everything has got the advantages as well as dis-advantages.Since this question is pertaing to the dis-advantages, I would like to say a few things.But it totally depends upon one's concept and agreeing with other's views.
1) Every person needs a personal and private place once in a while, so joint family is not an option there.
2) The house size should be big enough so that rooms don't need to be shared with others.But in a joint family it never occurs, especially in a place like Mumbai
3) Children's freedom is lost, upto certain extent whose ever feels that it is not enough for their growth.

But I still favour the Joint Family system only which got many positive things and advantages.

Some people may feel they are not at liberty to do things and have to go according to others wishes in a joint family system. But as most things in this world has both advantages and disadvantages, and one has to compare the benefits and demerits and decide which one is best suited for him/her, joint family also has both.
