Is there a term for men in their twenties and thirties? I'm specifically asking in the context of men although I imagine there might be a gender neutral adjective.
- "Young man" seems like it could encompass teenagers.
- "Young adult man" seems the same
- "Post-adolescent" seems again teenager-ish
- "Pre-middle age"?
This is for an academic research project that describes the lives of men who are out of high-school (and maybe college) but before they marry (hopefully) in their mid-late 30s. The student is using "men in their twenties and thirties" but we were hoping there was something more succinct.
