For Cathy and Gary, these are supposed to be their golden years. After working throughout their entire lives, they should be able to sit back, relax and enjoy each other’s company.
But they say that has all been wiped away, thanks to their 32-year-old “lazy, mooching” son Jeremy, who still lives at home with his parents.
“I want my son to move out and get a place of his own,” Gary says. “He just needs to have a life. We can’t have a full life because …”
“[Because] he’s here,” Cathy adds. “To have to support our 32-year-old son disgusts me.”
But Jeremy – who did not complete high school and, according to his parents, sleeps all day, rarely leaves the house and can’t find a full-time job – says his parents are to blame for his situation.
“I can’t move out of my parents’ home right now, because I’m not equipped to take care of myself,” Jeremy says. “I blame my mother for some of the choices she made that’s led my life to where it’s at.”
