    Cool What pushed you into adulthood?

    When was it, or what was it, that pushed you into adulthood?

    For me it was getting married and being a parent.

    Getting married and realizing that I now had to care for 2+ people, combined with my first mortgage two months later. Before that I already did "grown up" things like working a full-time job and paying bills, but buying a house kicks you into gear real fast.

    Mortgage.

    Until then I was still "Happy go lucky"

    Being married didn't do it but being thousands of pounds in debt did!

    Still don't feel like an adult yet. I work fulltime and have a wife.... I figure it'll happen once we have our first child and I realize that my life is no longer the most important thing to me....heh.

    I don't know if I'm there yet. I suspect becoming a parent will do it for me. The mortgage didn't really make much difference - it is just like paying rent.

    Except you can't call the landlord and scream at them when something breaks because it's you.

    Oh yeah. Good point. I ignore things when they break. My fiance is used to it. Luckily he is good at fixing things.

    Oh , I can give you a minute by minute account.

    For me it was my son, the minute I found out I was pregnant. What a wake up call.
