The study investigated whether there was a time difference between what society expected people to experience at a certain age and the age at which people actually engaged in those behaviors. The sample consisted of 13 men and 46 women with the age range from 18 to 54 years. On-line questionnaires were used to obtain all data. The findings showed that social expectations did not match with actual behaviors for women. Although interestingly, no significant difference between these two concepts was found for men.
