Here's an interesting link about memory: University of New Hampshire researchers discovered that the older adults they interviewed about their life stories invariably discussed their major life transitions.
That's no surprise--most of us divide our lives into segments of sorts, and those segments often fall along the lines of major life transitions.

Is it because we experience more life transitions during those years? Or are our aging memories playing tricks on us?
