He is either a devoted son or off limits... Check that.. he is "taken" and off limits...

Well, you know he'll leave you for her. And after she's dead, he probably won't ever leave you.

She would have to be at least 70. I would suspect that he is taking care of and supporting her. Which is an honorable thing to do.

That seems a little strange. HOPEFULLY he's living with her because she needs a caretaker & he's all she's got. But if he's living there because he doesn't want to work or get his life together, I would cruise right out of that path because it doesn't seem too promising. GOOD LUCK! :)

a bit strange...

It depends on several factors, I think. Why does he live with his Mom? Has he ever lived on his own? Is his Mother ill and he moved in to care for her? Did he lose his job and had to move back in with her? Has he been ill? If there is a logical reason then I think it's ok. But if he is 50 and has never lived on his own just because...well then I think he may be afraid of being on his own and being away from his Mom.

Let him stay there.

In many parts of the world it is normal for young men to live with their parents and eventually inherrit the parent's home and property. The oldest woman rules the home, and the son's wife has to obey his mother until mom dies.

That's not as often done in western culture. But its not unusual.

You need to find out why. If there's a good reason for it, cut him a break. If there really doesn't appear to be a good reason for it and it would appear to be an "abnormal" situation, I wouldn't.
