    I Want A Rule.

    For example:

    "I am in my late 40s"
    1-2-3-4-5-6-7-8-9-10
    I need them to be divided between early, middle, late
    My answer is this, early 1-2-3-4
    middle, 5-6-7, Here I am not sure
    late, 8-9-10

    I'm not sure what you mean. If you mean "Does "early 40s" mean "41, 42, 43 and 44" and "mid-40s" mean "45, 46 and 47" and "late 40s mean "48 and 49"?" then no, not necessarily. That's probably a fairly good guess of what most people mean when they say it but there is no rule.

    Some people might call 44 early 40s and some people might call it mid-40s.

    Please consider your thread titles more carefully. Not only did your title not include any part of the words you were querying, but it sounded like an order. That's not a good way to get people to help you.
    Remember - if you don't use correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing, anything you write will be incorrect.

    NOT A TEACHER

    There is no rule, as far as I know. Whether or not 46 counts as late or middle 40s is subjective. On the other hand, it seems to make sense that at age 41 you're in your early 40s and not in your late 40s.

    Re: I Want A Rule.

    I have recently become more interested in Judaism, and have started attending synagogue. The thing is that I am a single woman, never married, and don’t have any children. I am in my late 40s and really don’t know if I ever will marry. Judaism seems to be so focused around marriage and children that I just feel left out. Is there a place in Judaism for the single woman?

    "I am in my late 40s and really don’t know if I ever will marry."

    She hasn’t mentioned her age.

    If I had to guess, then I would assume she was either 48 or 49, possibly only 47. There is no "rule".
