Sorry, guys, life doesn't begin at 40 any more! Most men now only feel settled at 54

The famous saying 'life begins at 40' doesn't now ring true for most men, if a recent survey is anything to go by.

According to new research, life begins at 54 for most men - that's the age of Simon Cowell, Hugh Laurie and Kevin Spacey.

The main reasons that men believe their life begins later are financial pressures and the trend towards late fatherhood.

Traditionally, 40 was the age when men were finally able to enjoy life as a 'real adult'.

When a man reached 40 he was supposed to have left behind the insecurities of his 20s and 30s and achieved a level of financial stability.

In the past, his children would have reached an age where they were approaching self-sufficiency.

But the average age of a first-time father has shot up to 32 - with two-thirds of babies in the UK born to fathers over the age of 30.

The survey looked at the top insecurities that have lead to men not feeling settled until they are 54 - just 11 years off the retirement age of 65.

Top of the list of insecurities was the fear that they will never be able to pay for their home.

The second biggest body insecurity for men is losing their hair, the third biggest fear is losing their job and the fourth is not being in a settled relationship.
