New research commissioned by Nickelodeon UK indicates that men don't grow up until they reach age 43. The study also confirms something we already knew - it takes men longer to grow up than women. Those participating in the study agreed that women reach maturity at age 32. Whatevs.

What does this mean for relationships? Women are twice as likely to feel like they are the 'grown up' in their current pairing. Nearly half (46%) say they've had to mother their male partner a bit too much. Yikes.

On the other hand, 40% of those surveyed said that a partner's immaturity can help keep the relationship fresh and fun. So there!
