Well, I'm gay, so if that was true then I'll never be an adult.

Absolutely no way, you can still be a mature adult without ever needing to have kids or a family to prove otherwise

Obviously, this question depends on how you define an adult. But, I feel like most are not going to equate adulthood to getting married and having kids.

Heck, I've seen people in high school have kids. No way in hell are they adults.

No: not relying on you're parents, is what i would consider mental adult-hood, i.e you can self-sustain and think for yourself.

I voted no, as I am married, though yet to have a child, but I don't think becoming an adult began with my marriage. Perhaps the "responsibilities" of managing life are what we would consider being more of an adult These responsibilities aren't exclusive to marriage and settling down with a family and for some people may be present well before they are of "adult" age.

These are things adults often do, but they are not what makes those people adults.

OMG ABSOLUTELY NOT!!!! Not everyone wants to be married or have children!!! Even if you don't do those things it doesn't make you less of an adult... I know that I don't want to be married, and I would NEVER have children!!! I hate children more than anything on this planet!!!!!!!!

I feel a tiny bit sorry for whomever gets married then has a child and hopes to become mentally mature in time to not ruin three lives.
But I think that's because I expect bad things to happen.

Idk, I'm not married, don't have kids, feel like I'm exactly the same way I was a decade ago

I have friends younger and older than me, but none of us have children and the responsibilities that come with them. Idk, when I hang out with friends who are even closer in age to my parents than my own, but don't have children, I have a much easier time relating to them than my counterparts my own age with child rearing responsibilities.

I don't think kids are what makes you an adult, although having them definitely changes you greatly and gives you an added level of responsibility.

I have to go to work, pay my bills and after that the rest of the time in my week is mine to do whatever I want with it, seems like a much more carefree path to take to me.
