100%(╯_╰)如何英文...口業不要造會怎樣XDXD你是拒絕長大的“彼得·潘一代”嗎?


翻譯 社 韓語



If you're pushing your 30th birthday, then relax - because you're only just an adult.

如果你快過30歲生日瞭,那也別緊張——因為你才剛剛成為成年人。

Britain's Peter Pan generation is refusing to grow up, which is making 29 the 'new 21'.

英國的彼得 潘(Peter Pan)一代拒絕長大,將29歲活成另一個21歲(在英國滿21歲才正式成年)。

According to research, the nation's 20-somethings are leaving adult responsibilities like moving out of the family home and getting married until their early 30s, later than any previous generation.

調查表明,英國二十幾歲的年輕人將搬出父母傢、結婚等成年人的責任拖到30歲出頭再承擔,比以前的任何一代人都要晚。

Just 40 years ago teenagers grew up much quicker - and in the Seventies were habitually hitched by 23, had their first child at 26 and got the keys to their own pad by 27.

40年前的青少年成長速度可快得多瞭——上世紀70年代的英國人通常在23歲時結婚,26歲時有瞭第一個孩子,27歲時就買下自己的房子瞭。

But a study has found today's college and university leavers will be unlikely to have their own property until they reach 36.

不過一項研究表明,現在的大學畢業生們36歲以前基本不可能擁有自己的住處。

And the average age of having a child is 30, while the sound of wedding bells will not be heard until they are 31.

平均生育年齡是30歲,結婚的年齡也在31歲以後。

While 21 is traditionally seen as a coming of age, the survey for insurance firm Beagle Street found the average 20-something does not feel like a grown-up until 29.

依照傳統觀點,21歲是成年的標志,但是英國保險公司比爾格街(Beagle Street)的調查發現,二十幾歲的年輕人們直到29歲才會覺得自己是個成年人瞭。

Its study found signs of delayed adulthood include living at home and relying on parents to do the household chores, not having a nine-to-five job, playing computer games and watching kids movies like Inside Out and Frozen.

這項調查發現,成人期滯後的跡象包括:住在父母傢中並讓父母幹傢務、沒有一份朝九晚五的工作、玩電腦遊戲、看《頭腦特工隊(Inside Out)》和《冰雪奇緣(Frozen)》等兒童電影。

A fear of responsibility was also a reason for wanting to stay young, along with not learning to drive or setting up a bank account.

對責任的恐懼也是年輕人不想長大、不想學開車、不想擁有自己的銀行賬戶的原因之一。

But true signs of becoming a fully fledged adult were buying a property, doing DIY, paying into a pension scheme and looking forward to a night in.

而成為一個真正的成年人的標志包括:自己買房、自己動手、向養老金計劃存錢以及期待晚上宅在傢裡度過。
