On "young men"

An old friend, coincidentally the antithesis of a pre-adult male described in the article, posted it on Facebook this afternoon. I couldn't resist at least a short rant.

Granted, given my upbringing, "maturity" was delayed - I lived at home through the first two years of college, with at most a part-time job, and am still financially dependent - typical during graduate school. However, the ability and tendency to be responsible as needed is definitely present.

Why not expect that of a comparably-aged, marriageable young man?
