Sixty years ago the average age to get married was 26-years-old. After tying the knot most folks got a house, had some kids and made a quick transition from being a kind of grown up to a fully fledged adult. But we don鈥檛 need to tell you that it doesn鈥檛 really work like that anymore. Your post-grad stint in mom and dad鈥檚 house is probably doing a pretty good job of making that painfully obvious. If you鈥檙e wondering why you still feel like a kid well into your 20s, it turns out you鈥檙e not the only one asking that question. UK firms Fly Research and Beagle Street Life Insurance recently interviewed 2,000 British millennials to help understand when and what makes them feel like a real adult.

The most surprising takeaway? Most people don鈥檛 actually feel like they鈥檝e hit adulthood until they鈥檙e 29-years-old. The main reason twenty-somethings still feel like adolescents tended to be lack of life events that are usually accompanied by more responsibility (ie buying a house, getting married, having kids, etc.) While those seem like obvious reasons, we were surprised at a few other factors respondents associated with adulthood. Some of which included: DIY projects (whaaat?) and hosting a dinner party. If you want to learn how to master both of those things real quick, check here and here. Scroll on down to check out the top ten life events people associated with both adulthood and lingering adolescence.
