An Italian couple from Venice have brought in the lawyers in a last ditch attempt to try and make their 41-year old son leave the family home.
The unnamed parents have said that they are “exhausted” after caring for their son permanently for more than four decades with duties including cooking all his meals and doing his washing and ironing.
The father said: “We cannot do it anymore. My wife is suffering from stress and had to be hospitalised. Our 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.”
A letter has now been sent to the son asking him to leave the house and if he refuses a court will be asked to issue a protection order to the parents against their son.
