Life Passages

I am enjoyuing reading Gail Sheehy's New Passages in which she discusses
important changes that are occuring within middle class American life
stages. For example the likely extension o adolesence well into the twenties.
I would be interested in observations of members of Anthro-L regarding
changes in life stages in America or other cultures. Industrial,
post industrial and traditional societies may all be experiencing intriguing
shifts in life style patterns. I wonder what they might be.
