Childhood never ends
The week's news at a glance.
A disabled father must pay a quarter of his pension to support his 25-year-old son, a Spanish court ruled this week. Francisco Sanchez must continue paying $280 a week to his son, who lives with Sanchezs ex-wife, even though the son has already graduated from university and has an unpaid internship at a local engineering firm. The judge ruled that the son had not yet gained his own financial independence and was therefore entitled to continued parental support. The average Spanish man lives with his parents until he is 30; women typically leave home at 28.
