Not just that. His parents also live with their parents. This 30 yo projects a picture of independence to his peers, but goes home every day to get his allowance from the parents and grandparents. He is not allowed to make major decisions, he is not allowed to veer off the family's prescribed route, nor he is allowed to have friends over without a prior consent from the home owners, the grandparents.
Jordan is this guy that says he's independent, but still has to run things by those in the position of parents, i.e. Saudi Arabia and Egypt, and the uninvited, spoiled uncle that doesn't really give a damn: Israel. These, consequently, turn to the grandparents for protection, money, and influence to tell them what to do. The grandparents are the US, EU, and lately, more increasingly, China.
This 30 yo is not single, he's been married since the age of 7 and never got a grasp on going for it alone and learning of a way to gain real independence. Despite their burning desires to progress and be like the grandparents' overseas children, Jordan's children are always told stories of horror that happened to the ones that ask too many questions and disrupt the calm of the living room. They dream of the day that their father would just pack and leave to a place where he's the real master of his domain. However, their father has always been made an offer he has until today not refused.
