For a lot of women out there, even the smallest idea of them turning into their mothers would be a horrifying thought, and definitely something they want to avoid at all costs. However, a new study has poured cold water on all these ideas, claiming that it might all be inevitable after all.
A new research has claimed that when women reach the mature age of 33, they officially begin turning into their mothers, picking up their habits, tastes, and attitudes, all of which they probably never thought they would have. The study especially holds true for women if they have recently had a child.
The research was conducted by Harley Street Surgeon, Dr. Julian De Silva, who spoke to 2,000 men and women as part of the study, given that the average age for women giving birth in the UK is 30.05 years. Dr. De Silva concluded that more than half of these women found themselves acting more like their mother in their early 30s.
He also explained that this behavior in women was opposed to the rebelling they had done in their younger years. The behavior traits include adopting the same sayings, participating in the same hobbies and even watching the same television shows as their mothers.
It was also noted that men too begin morphing into their fathers at a similar age, at around 34, with them starting to like the same music as their dads and taking up matching political viewpoints.
Apart from gaining our parents' character traits, people also tend to look more like their parents as they age, as reported by the Mirror.
Dr. De Silva explained: "We all turn into our parents at some point in our lives — and that is something to be celebrated. Becoming parents is the main trigger, and lifestyle factors are also important."
He added: "It is an inevitable part of aging but a process lot of people want to put off for as long as possible. It is one of the reasons why the average age of first-time cosmetic surgery is coming down for both sexes too."
Earlier, a 2009 study also found that mothers and daughters tend to age facially in the same way — which explains why in her prom photos, your mom looks like you, photographed in the middle of doing some 1980s cosplay.
