For the Italians family is always on the first place. They highly appreciate traditions and family ties, respect older generation and try to spend much time with relatives. Frequent walking, family dinners at weekends are a very important part of their lives. That's why the Italians always celebrate holidays with relatives, not friends.
Italian men can live with their parents till they are 30 or even 40 years old. The thing is, the laws in Italy are quite strict - if a man marries a woman and then divorces he must support his ex-wife and children anyway. Besides, the procedure can be quite tiresome and last up to several years.
So, the Italians are very scrupulous as far as the choice of their life partners is concerned.
