A social worker friend of mine brought this up just the other day, commenting that her parents were from the Mad Men generation, that they worked and raised kids and pretty much were "grown up" 24/7. She and her husband were having a Star Wars marathon and getting ready to game a little later and she realized her parents never did anything like that, so seemingly juvenile. It was thought-provoking. I certainly feel like my marriage is much less serious (yet somehow more solid) than my parents'.
Everyone gets older but we don't all grow up?
