CWN Editor's Note: Italian’s highest court has ruled that parents are not under a legal obligation to provide financial support for their adult children. The case involved a 35-year-old man who demanded parental support, saying that his own earnings were not adequate; a lower court had affirmed his right to a continued allowance. Nearly two-thirds of Italy’s young adults live with their parents, according to a 2019 survey.
