The New York Times book review section on Russian lit leads off with a book called--are you ready for this empty nesters?--There once lived a mother who loved her children, until they moved back in.
Need I say more. Of course, things are a little different for the Russian moms in the three novellas ((by Ludmilla Petrushevskaya) that make up the book. They live in close quarters--kommunalkas (small apartments that house multiple and not necessarily related families). So there are privacy issues that pale in comparison to ours.
Just saying: there's a universality of issues out there.
