He is 30, refuses to get his own place, and they are *still* offering his money and help??? That's why he still lives at home at 30. They take care of everything for him. I wouldn't be surprised to find out they were still doing his laundry and cooking his meals when the first eviction letter was sent.

Maybe I should have my strict Catholic parents give seminars to parents of potential slackers - because all four of us kids were very, very excited to leave home eventually.

CSB: I have an ex-girlfriend who's 42, and still lives with her parents. An attached 1R/1B condo behind the garage, but still. She's a doctor, her parents live in ultra-conservative Eagle/Vail. She's taken to holistic medicine now and can barely make ends meet. I guess she's waiting for them to die so she can just make off with their bootstraps.

I know someone that used to hang out with us often that's 38 and has never had a place of his own. Father doesn't even charge him (or his 30 something year old brother) rent either. Neither want their own place as well.

As someone that moved out at 17, this blows my mind. How and why would you want to live with your parents as an adult? Especially when you make more than enough to live on your own?
I had to move back in with my parents for a few months around the age of 30 when a long term relationship fell apart and I was living out of state at the time. I made it a point to get work and at least find a friend with an open room willing to rent to me ASAP. Even having roommates at 30 is far less embarrassing than still living with your parents.

While living with my parents between jobs, my mom gave me shiat for the same thing. I certainly wasn't going to tell her that I was actually running just the cold water for the first ten or so minutes to cover up the sound of me fapping.

It's embarrassing to have roommates at 30? I had one until I was 32. Being totally alone is much more expensive and being alone with your own thoughts can be tough on the old sanity if you're a cronic overthinker like me.

Yeah, I know a person like this and just don't get the mentality. She's a great person and one of my closest friends, but she lived at home until she married her husband at 30. She worked and helped with expenses, so not like this dude.

Still though, I can't spend two weeks at my parents' house without going stir-crazy (and I actually love them), much less bring a date back there. Boggles the mind.

17 and 30 is a big age difference.  I could certainly see the reasons one has for getting out at 17 to subside by age 30.  One learns to adapt to the situation.

I'd wager that, by 30, it's as disrupting for that guy to leave his parents' home as it would be for the rest of us to have to move back in with our parents.

Poor phrasing on my part I suppose. It can be inconvenient at times mostly, but is a much more desirable solution than living with the parents.
Then again, I'm 40 and technically have a roommate if you want to consider signifant others roommates.

A brother of a friend still lives at home with his parents at age 36 and does nothing but play world of warcraft for like 16 hours a day.

Thats it, wake up and right on the computer. It might sound like a joke but it's been like this for 12 years.

The converted garage smells like a well used wet hamster cage.

I have no idea what's going to happen when his parents die.

She's a real and tangible doctor of medicine, she's just decided she'd rather pursue the holistic BS. Massage therapy, acupuncture, herbs and shiat. She's got suckers clients spread out throughout the central mountains, which means a lot of driving and very little contact time compared to someone with a physical office and 15min consults scheduled all day.

Not mentioned in TFA...

Their son's girlfriend at the time, Beth, said that the car was... I believe the term was... "tasty".  Since last September that "tasty" car has slept in an auto cocoon on Christina and Mark's front lawn.

We're hoping things don't get too drastic and they don't end up throwing away a perfectly good white boy.

Bowen: A friends (no, seriously - not me) parents sold the house and moved to get him out.


I saw this done to one person I knew (very loosely) and it was sad.

When I was about 6-15 years old there was a kid a few houses down from my grandparents that I used to play with when visiting. No one in my family wanted me to play with him, but it was never explained to me until I was an adult. This kid was apparently very mentally ill and had the signs that I either didn't witness or didn't recognize: setting fire to things, torturing animals, being extremely mischievous, etc. His bedroom at his house was a mattress on the floor, nothing else in the room, windows locked closed, and a padlock on the OUTSIDE of the door. Apparently his parents had to lock him in his bedroom at night because he'd try to sneak into his sisters' room and I guess do some molesting stuff. When he'd get sent to the mental ward at the local hospital for court-ordered treatment the nurses would have him in a bed out in the common area by the nurse's station, because apparently he couldn't ever be left unobserved.

The last time his parents sent him for treatment was a few weeks over his 18th birthday. When he was released from treatment, no one showed up to pick him up. No one answered the phone when the nurses called to try to reach his parents. A sheriff deputy drove him home and his parents had moved out of the house without telling anyone. They abandoned the house and left no forwarding address to anyone. They just left him to the streets when they moved.
 
2018-05-16 08:08:13 AM  
I've had my two of my adult children move in to my home at various times.

I lay out my fairly flexible rules for them: clean up your own messes, pay a token amount of money (or weed) for rent and DO NOT disturb my sleep. Oh yeah, and if you get jailed for something stupid, I will not bail you out.

They've managed to screw that arrangement up every time, in every aspect laid out above in my easily-met rules.

So I live alone, blissfully, with my pups and cats.

The parents are doing it the correct way. While it is obnoxiously slow, an illegal eviction (a DIY) can result in the person who was locked out suing the landlord (which is what the parents are in this case) and winning the right to move back in.

I expect moving day there is going to be wild: a sheriff's deputy, a locksmith and a moving crew. The sheriffs deputy keeps the peace, the moving crew picks up every thing, bags it and puts it on the street and the locksmith changed the locks. After a certain amount is bagged and put in the street (looking like garbage), the son will have to go outside to defend his property from scrounges. Once he is outside the deputy prevents the son from re-entry. The moving crew finished their work, the locksmith finished up. The mom and dad lock up leaving the son on the curb with his stuff.

This is the hard part: keeping the door locked when the son begs to be let back in.

I didn't read all the article, but if he didn't have a lease and wasn't paying rent, is he really a "tenant" needing to be evicted? Change the damned locks and be done with him.

I bought the house I grew up in from my parents by the time I was 26. So yes, I technically lived in my parents house, but I OWNED the damned thing. OK, the bank owned it, but at least my parents didn't.

My son moved back in with me, and most things are fine, except that he spends 10 minutes jacking off before getting in the shower.  Of course, I don't want him to know I know he's doing it, so I just yell at him to stop using so much hot water.

Resident, not tenant.

Tenancy laws still cover situations when you need an eviction. Mostly it's about someone establishing residency, meaning something like they get mail there and the place they are living is their known and established residence. In this case of not having a lease, it's just not a formal written agreement with all the things involved... but he's still a resident and you have to go through eviction process.
