Abstract/Resumo
This article analyses how young people progress to adult life in Portuguese society. It is based on the main conclusions of sociological research into transitions to adulthood in Portugal, a society that is itself passing through far-reaching and rapid transition, both economically and culturally. In this article, analysis of transitions to adulthood focuses on four central dimensions - education, work, family, and gender. After that, an attempt to create a typology of modes of transition to adult life is done on a final section. The typology is presented as a way of analysing the complex forms through which those different dimensions are articulated and intertwined along the young people's pathway to adulthood.
