lives with this mother...
...say´s it all
I lived with my parents until I was 19 as most people I know lived with their parents until a similar age. I know some Greek men and Women who live with their parents until they are married in their late 20's or early 30's. It's a cultural (and economic) thing.

More clay feet spotted!
Yet another net "libertarian", no doubt, who turns out to be just a petty crim.
