Italian parents bring in lawyer to evict 41-year-old son

Fact is stranger than fiction. An exasperated elderly couple has resorted to legal help to kick out their 41-year-old son who they say has a good job and steady income.

Young Italians are renowned for their reluctance to leave home, with a study released last year showing that 48% of offspring between the ages of 18 and 39 still live under their parents' roofs.

This is a fairly common theme in Asia though, mainly due to poverty in developing nations (though you do get the occasional spoiled mommy's boys -- and girls -- with good jobs who refuse to move out). Of course there are those in more advanced nations who stay with their folks due to high housing prices  -- thanks to all the "foreign talent" coming into their country taking their jobs and all.
