MEN: ‘Immature’ Until 43?!

2 Comments   Posted:   by

Overtime and going home late is now a work health and safety issue

As the saying goes… “The First 40 Years of Childhood are Always the Hardest!”

Ladies and gentlemen, if you are looking for an excuse for your own behaviour, or that of a significant others…. then LISTEN UP!!

Recent studies have shown that men don’t mature until they are around 43 years of age. In comparison, women ‘mature’ about 11 years earlier, at the age of 32. The study also went onto find that more than 8 in 10 women believe that men never stop being childish.

With more than one in four men describing themselves as actively immature, this leaves the majority of women to describe themselves as the ‘grown up’ of the relationship. Women also find themselves burdened with the responsibility of all important decision-making.

A third of people surveyed found childish behaviour and immature traits to be important in bonding with kids AND a fourth of people stated that immaturity was responsible for keeping a relationship fresh! While some of the findings are positive, the average woman finds herself telling her partner to ‘act his age’ at least once a month – prompting 3 in 10 to end a relationship because of it!

With breaking wind, eating fast food and playing video games the biggest pet peeves – check out the full list of men’s maturity fails below!
