Re: Tuvok: the only adult on Voyager

There's also the expectation of spending years in school getting masters degrees etc..which delays living as an independent adult. I've noticed a difference in Australia and America in this respect as going to university is not the expected thing here and people are fully qualified and employable in a trade by or before they are 20. So it's not just the economics of the job market, it's that we don't expect people to be living as independent adults outside of a school and/or parents setting until a lot later than we did in the past.
