    But if you live alone then you may not cook dinner at all if you don’t want to! I never cook when alone without my family (who either insists on eating warm dinner or whom I want to feed healthy).

    In the final panel, I think it’s the opposite. Anyway, I have two cousins who are brothers unmarried in their 40s who still live with their mother. I don’t know why with the older, but the younger is a “special” case if you know what I mean.

    @hsawlrae: no, she didn’t. Val doesn’t live with her mom, her mom lives with her.

    I always though Val bought the house from Evie. Or did I dream this up?

    If you live with your parents and end up taking care of them, that puts a different spin on the matter. Even if some very stupid, prejudiced people say you’re living off of them and are irresponsible.

    yep, I agree. I did it for many years before I married and as much as I love my husband I would just once like to come home to an empty house and have popcorn for dinner. lol Of course I would want him back soon.

    When Evie is there, she lives with Val and the girls.

    Well, at least Val said “eligible men” today; yesterday’s ’hasn’t met the right person’ made me wonder where the story line was going. Not that I care, it just seemed forced/unnatural as opposed to ’hasn’t met the right guy’ (or gal) yet’

    Well, one thing positive thing may have come out of this economic disaster is the reunification of families forced to live together the way we used to.

    I had it backwards.

    If my mom and I had ever shared a home, one of us would have been in hospital and the other in jail. No telling which way it would have gone.

    Having been suddenly widowed, there was a period of time I considered moving to live near my parents. To be close to family that you love is a comfort especially in times of grief.
    In my case, it would have been a mistake because I would not have met the girl that became my second wife and the mother of my only daughter.
    Remember, men who live close to their parents (even if it is in the same house) are not necessarily “momma’s boys”. They may be living there to help support the one that gave them life and raised them at a time of life that their mothers need help.
    Even so, it should be at least a mild warning sign. Just because he is not a momma’s boy and loves you, it does not mean that the situation would be a good one. Remember that the Chinese ideogram for trouble is two women under one roof.
