    The Italian practice of having your children stay at home long into adulthood is facing scrutiny in the courts..... A Venetian couple has retained the services of a lawyer in a bid to force their 41-year-old son to leave home. ....The couple, who have not been named, told local media they were “exhausted” by caring for their adult child. .....They currently cook for him as well as doing his washing and ironing.

    "We cannot do it anymore. My wife is suffering from stress and had to be hospitalized," said the father...... The son "has a good job but still lives at home. .....He demands that his clothes be washed and ironed and his meals prepared. ....He really has no intention of leaving..."Lawyer for the couple, Andrea Camp, said a letter was sent to the son, advising him to leave the house within six days or face legal action.

    Bet you didn't know they had basements in Italy.
    I dream of the day a chicken can cross the road without it's motives being questioned.

    Hmm, this is Venice. So maybe they keep him in the attic as the basement would probably be a bit damp. :D

    We could say they are spending like drunken sailors. That would be unfair to drunken sailors, they're spending their OWN money.

    The parents could run around the house naked and he would be gone in two days.
    The difference between pigs and people is that when they tell you you're cured it isn't a good thing.

    Maybe not. Free food and laundry and the ability to order your parents around are all very difficult to leave. Even if the old papa put a gun to the son's head it might not happen.

    Can we ask why this son never married?
