Man Sues His Parents for His Allowance, Court Orders Him to Move out and Find a Job

The parents of a 25-year old man in Spain told him to either look for a job or they would stop paying him $588 in monthly allowance. Then they followed through on their threat. So the young man sued them in court. The judge dismissed his complaint and ordered him to move out of their home and find a job:

However, the judge told the man, who has not been named in court documents, that he must leave his parents' house within 30 days.

The judge said the man was studying law, albeit at a slow rate, and would probably not complete the degree for several years, but he thought he was still capable of finding some kind of work.

Wow, gotta love Spanish judges. If he'd sued here (in the U.S.) the judge likely would have awarded him his parents house along with pain and suffering because he HAD to take an allowance.

Wow. Now, I'm from the Mediterranean myself and it's pretty normal for kids to live with their parents until marriage in some of the more old-fashioned areas, but I've never heard of anyone receiving that kind of fixed allowance. Much less suing for it.
