Are we taking longer to grow up?

This was quite an article. It discusses how it seems to be taking longer for the generation now in our 20's and 30's to "grow up." According to researchers, the five traditional milestones for adulthood are; completing school, leaving home, becoming financially independent, getting married and having a child. According to census data, in 1960, a much larger percentage of Americans had reached those milestones by age 30 than do today. The impacts of this change are affecting everything from health insurance regulation to fertility rates.

What is it about 20-Somethings?

Maybe my thrifty tips will help some people work on the "becoming financially independent" milestone!
