Men do grow up! See when.


Bad news guys – there will come a time when immaturity will be something of the past.

According to a study men only grow up on the ripe old age of 43. Women typically reach maturity at 32.

This study was done by Nickelodean for the launch of a new TV series, so it hardly represents conclusive scientific findings.

Even so, it remains an interesting topic of discussion as I’ve heard many women complain and many men proudly agree with the assertion that men mature later than women.

But 43 does seem rather late, doesn’t it? And I’m 33 and I don’t feel mature at all! So obviously it varies. Let’s leave it up to you.
