A human is considered a young adult from the time they are in their late teens or early twenties until about the time they reach their thirties, though an exact range is widely debated. Young adulthood is also understood as the time leading up to middle age, which begins once a human reaches about 40 years of age. In many cultures, this time period is often characterized as an era of great independence, great fun, and even greater confusion as a young person adjusts to the rhythm of adulthood. It is during young adulthood that a human may experience what is commonly known as a quarter-life crisis.
