Men mature at 43, women at 32: Study

Women often accuse men of being immature — and there may be some truth in it after all! The age that men mature completely is 43, which is 11 whole years after women, a study has found. Women were regarded as being mature at the age of 32, the research commissioned by Nickelodeon UK found.

Eight out of 10 women quizzed in the study said men "never stop being childish" and said the biggest bug-bears were how they found flatulence amusing, eating fast food in the early hours and playing video games. Staying silent after rows, racing another car at traffic lights, being unable to cook simple meals and sniggering at rude words were also regarded as signs of male immaturity.

Men were nearly twice as likely as women to describe themselves as immature. Also, females were twice as likely as men to feel that they were the "grown up" in a relationship . A third had broken up with a man they thought was too immature. Men whose mothers still did their washing or cooked them meals rated low in the maturity stakes.

Owning a skateboard or BMX bike was another no-no for women, as was wearing cartoon pyjamas or having a cartoon bedspread. One in four women felt they were the ones who made all the important decisions in the relationship with the same percentage wishing their partner would talk about themselves and their feelings more often.

Almost 46% of women have had a relationship in which they felt they had to mother their partner a bit too much.
