What are the necessary conditions of being considered an adult?


Some think of it as a continuum, some think once they achieve a certain age, or perhaps even marry, but even those vary by culture. In most western cultures there is no set point as with a few others, which have some form of adulthood ceremony. How do we know if we have achieved this classification? There are several definitions, legal, social, self perceptual, but is there one overarching definition?
