Woman Wins Court Battle to Have Adult Sons Evicted from Her Home

They say a mother’s love is infinite, but there’s only so much even a loving mother can take. Take the story of an unidentified Italian woman who recently won a court case to have her two sons — ages 40 and 42 — evicted from her home after they refused to contribute to the household in any way. The 75-year-old woman from the city of Pavia had long tried to talk her sons into moving out, especially since they both had jobs and could afford their own places. However, they refused to even entertain the notion, as well as refusing to do any household chores or even contribute to the household expenses. The bizarre case wound up in the court of Judge Simona Caterbi, who sympathized with the elderly woman and issued an eviction notice to the two men. In her ruling, the judge argued that while it’s the obligation of the parent to provide maintenance to their children until they reach the age of 18, that obligation is not justifiable when the children are in their 40s. The freeloaders have until December 18th to move out. Interestingly, Italy almost 70% of adults ages 18-34 still live at home with their parents.
