Where In Life Were You At In Your 30's Compared To Parents

Recommended Posts

common theme seems to be that our parents had much more focus than we do and got on with life without over-analyzing things

meet and marry someone you like, have kids early, buy a house, struggle through the early years and by 40 your saucepans are teenagers and your house is more or less paid off

we faff about too much

My mum told me when I was a teenager 'Whatever you want to do get on and do it, you might be dead next year'. Good advcice then as it is now. Of course that generation saw friends, neighbours and family randomly killed by infectious diseases and enemy action in a way we have happily never had to experience.

I'm in my 30s and am considerably better off financially than my parents were at my age.

Despite my hatred of Thatcher at the time I now realise that as the first person in my family to go to university in the early 90s, my upward social mobility owes much to the fact that not only did the state pay my fees, it also gave me a subsistence grant - without which i would never have been able to go. This was of course back when quite a small percentage of the population went to university.
