Here’s an interesting story. A court in Mumbai, India, recently ruled that adult children “can live in the house of their parents only with the consent of their parents and not otherwise.” This ruling was the result of a case in which a 35-year-old woman and her husband were arguing that they had the right to live in her 73-year-old father’s apartment even though the father wanted them to leave. It’s not clear yet what the long-term effects, if any, of this particular ruling will be in India. You can read more about this story on the BBC’s website here.
