    That one was easy.

    "When he takes care of his responsibilities"

    Age has very little to do with it. Unfortunately the actual age a man starts to take care of his responsibilities keeps getting higher and higher.

    I'll agree, it has nothing to do with age, when he lives and acts like a man, thats when he's a man.

    I agree. There are many guys who claim to be men, but they're just really old boys!

    Mark Driscoll had a message where he talked about this - the difference between men and "boys who shave". I know many "boys who shave" who are well over 25 years old and I know a few men who are under 18. It's not an age - it's when one is responsible.

    You see male "adults" still living with their parents. He doesn't look for work or his own place to live but lives off Mom and Dad. What money he gets goes for his wants alone. He is not a man no matter what his age. He is still a child.

    Of course, there are those who will never be mentally capable of taking care of themselves or living alone. I'm talking about those who are perfectly capable of working and supporting themselves and won't; they are lazy and self-centered.

    A man is a man when he becomes responsible for his actions and lifestyle. I like the poem "If" by Rudyard Kipling, because that sums it up.

    A man is a man when the wife says he is a man and not one second before.
