If you're pushing your 30th birthday, then relax - because you're only just an adult.
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.
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.
But a study has found today's college and university leavers will be unlikely to have their own property until they reach 36.
And the average age of having a child is 30, while the sound of wedding bells will not be heard until they are 31.
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.
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.
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.
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.
