in terms of biology people don't reach adulthood until the age of 24. i mean to say at age 24 you are finished developing mentally and physically. at age 18 not only is ur muscle and skeletal structure not done...niether is your brain....especially in the frontal lobe (specifically hte part that comes with making decision and deciding based on consuqeunces...like thinking b4 u leap)...

I would say we reach the age of mark adulthood mentally when you are about 20. During that time your brain is developed.

May be right. I mean at the producing offsprings point of view. Many things change with periods (I'm female so a I can't tell about men.), that' right. But can you say that a girl is a women at the age of 10. I don't think so. :) Maybe attain womenhood is a better word.

I have seen it seems like some people never reach adulthood (emotional maturity that is :))
The hand of God may well be all around us, but it is not, nor can it be, the task of science to dust for fingerprints.

That can be changed into: Men never reach adulthood emotionally. :)
