What Makes An Adult A Man Or A Woman? Is It By Age Or Maturity Or What? by emazIng: 2:18pm On May 02
Some say a person is a man or woman because he/she has come of age. Is this really true?

I am curious to know your take on this matter. Let's discuss people. Who knows, we can learn a thing or two or more smiley

A boy becomes a man when he starts taking care of his responsibilities, while a girl becomes a woman when she get married and birth a SON.

So, a 45 year old baby mama(not yet married) is still a girl

RESPONSIBILITY!!!!
a 10 years old kid who caters for his siblings is in every sense a matured man in comparison to a 40 years old who lives only for himself.

The word again is RESPONSIBILTY. the size and spread of ur responsibility is the measure of ur maturity.

Lol...except of course if in those 45 years she can point to tangible impacts in other lives that wouldn't have been made without her.
Any other things, I support u totally

to break it down...

<18=boy/girl
18+=man/woman


but maturity has to do with being able to handle situation responsibly generally.

therefore, a 40year old person who can't behave responsibly will be regarded as immature.

Having read the very commendable comments so far,

Can we say maturity has to do with responsibility and not just by age?

Again, is there more to maturity than just being responsible?
