    Awesome. We have the liberal truth here...the side of the aisle that says it hates broad brushing, stereotyping and sells itself as thinking outside the box and is never bigoted.

    Talk is cheap.
    Thanks from Jeremy

    It's different among different peoples, I suppose...

    Looking at marriage, for example, take Russia, where it is legal to marry at 18 or, minimum, 16, with parental consent.

    Yet Romas/Gypsies, for instance, often marry way younger



    Few days ago, shoppers at a mall in Novosibirsk observed a Gypsy wedding party, between a 14 year old girl and 11 year old boy



    Some people commenting online were shocked by it, but locals were shrugging, like, they are Gypsies, man, this is just how they live lol

    18. It just postpones the inevitable making one wait to do "adult things." Have a friend who refused to let her daughter drive until she turned 21 and she regretted it since she is so immature having had to wait for parents to drive her everywhere. She has no responsibilities or doesnt feel the need to.

    Okay, so if 25 is the age where they become an adult more or less, then do they still have to listen to their parents until that time?

    Only if they are still putting their feet under their parents table...or dependent solely on their parents. Age is just a number, but true adulthood begins when you can take care of yourself.

    Quit school = ?
    It's a sliding scale to be sure....

    Scientifically - the latest information is that the brain is not fully mature till around the age of 25 (give or take a few years as it varies depending on the individual).
