    He has till 40? Maybe dad will become super annoying when Baldo is 33?

    Does Sergio really want Baldo living at home until he’s out of college and has a family?

    Depends, Papi. For my parents, when I had to live with them in my 30s, the deal was to still have a job and contribute around the house. My step-mom is not as physically active as she used to be, so I made it a point to do the house-cleaning (I even had to scold her a few times not to overdo it because she hates sitting around lol). I sometimes help my dad with projects around the house he needs help with, even though he IS physically active (the man is in his 70s now but you would think he was still in his 50s looking at him!). I have my own place and my own life, but if I ever hit worst case scenario, I know I’ll at least never be homeless.

    He has until he’s 40? I remember reading about a man (I use the term loosely) of 30 who refused to get a job or help out around the house. He just stayed in his room playing video games. His parents wanted him out but by law they had to go through a lot to get rid of him.

    With the price of housing these days, it will soon be impossible for someone of Baldo’s generation to afford their own place. College is almost unaffordable these days.

    I wonder what that means in English.

    I think that this is somewhat of a cultural thing. In many parts of the world homes are multi-generational, with grandparents, parents, and children all living under the same roof. It’s no disgrace to young singles – or even young married couples – to still be living in their parents home. The fact that they are expected to contribute to running and maintaining that home and assisting their parents goes without saying!

    IMO, people with disabilities should be allowed to live with their parents as long as possible. Even those on the higher functioning end of the spectrum have trouble making it on their own. They really need to be cut some slack.

    Apparently, this sort of thing happens a Lot in Italy these days.

    Usually because the Mom is encouraging the son to stay.

    Husband and I each lived at home until we were in our late 20s. Straight through college, grad school and start of our careers. We started dating in our early 20s – lived at home and dated for close for about 5 years before getting married. Last month was the 50th anniversary of our first date!
