I cants wit dis. I cants.
Did you watch this last night? TLC's latest reality show MAMA'S BOYS OF THE BRONX takes you into the lives of a group of men, aged 26 to 48, who still live at home with their Italian mothers. It should be called WHAT NOT TO MARRY.
Now that I'm getting up there in age (hell, I am up there), the pickings are really slim. Yet I REFUSE to consider a man living with his mother. Not a guy who moved back home for legitimate reasons (loss of job, saving for a down payment, or to care for parents), I'm talking about the type that never left because his mother does everything for him. Guys, like the ones in this show, whose mothers wash their clothes, cook their meals, even pack their lunches. I have always worked with one of those guys, and they're usually the nicest guy in the office, but here's my problem. I'm sure as hell not doing all that crap for him (I barely do it for myself, and I live alone); more importantly, I'm pretty sure I won't be able to do it better than his mother. Right there, we know what were going to be fighting about. . . right up until the divorce, so why bother?
