I was 18. Take my advice, STAY with your parents for as long as you can! Once you're out on your own, you'll find out how difficult it is to get by with bills you're not use to having much less paying! I'm 25 now with 3 kids and I wouldn't trade them for the world but I still wished I would've stayed home a little longer. No sense in diving head first before you check the depth of the waters!

was 17 when I joined the army. But if they will let you live there and go to college, do it! Oh, and don't join the army unless you are sure it's what you want.

I left home at 16 and got a part time job, recently I put myself though Uni, I reccommend staying in education while you are young and you can enjoy the lifestyle dont be to eager to get a job and do the 9-5 thing. Independence is the important thing you can have that still living with you folks and more importantly you can lose it living away from home. Move out when you are ready and into a good set up dont lose some freedoms to gain some others.

i was 17 and got kicked out because i got my girlfriend pregnant, not the best decision, but i finished high school, and went to college before breaking it off with her. i don't recommend this to anyone though because it sucks being broke and being a dad so young, but im almost 31 now and it seems to have helped me grow up to be a functional human. one good point about being a young single dad is the opportunity to date your kids teachers fresh outta college and chaperoning school dances(i have 1 tonight) to pick up single moms who think youre a great guy because you didnt abandon your kid which apparently a lot of their baby daddies did.

I was 17 and thought I was living the dream. Then I ran out of money, and had to eat top ramen and toast for 2 weeks till I got paid again. I moved back and forth a bunch of times because I needed to. Stay as long as you can till you are established in a career , and can build your credit. Save and budget your money till your ready to buy a house or you get married. You will have a lot less struggles in life if you do. This of course is all based on the fact that you have loving, caring parents. If someone is in a dangerous sitution, do what you gotta do .

I live with my parents and I'm 28, but I've moved out a few time inbetween living with them. I've got enough money to move out but I prefer staying at home. It keeps them happy!

I'm 25 and still at home, although I'm moving out in a few months. I wanted to make sure I was financially secure before moving out, and my father is a disabled vet, so he needs a strong back around to help out. I'll still live here in the winter, but I'll have my own place in Montana by the Fall.

Thats funny as hell Ramen is so true! man i moved out last August. Me and my girl moved out to San Diego. Shits crazy man, i went from having all kinds of munchies at home to eating Ramen all year. Its got its advantages but, ill be back for the summer and will be nice to live at home for a while until baseball practice starts up next August and i go back to Ramen noodles and spaghetti.

I was 21 when I left home. I would have stayed longer except my sister had to move back home with her 3 kids and deadbeat boyfriend so I got the hell out of there. If you are in school stay at home. The stress of being a full-time student plus having to hold a full time job to pay the rent sucks. Plus, if you are planning on getting a place with a friend as a room mate it can be really tough on a friendship if the other guy isn't responsible enough to hold up his end.

Initially moved out at 18, then moved back in again shortly thereafter to "protect" my little sister from an abusive step-mother, then moved out again at 22 and bought a house here in NY after my little sister moved out on campus at school. Personally I would reccomend staying home as long as you can and saving money, especially if you get along with your parents and/or they need your assistance to live (unless of course the home environment is a hostile one).

people who move out before 22 will have a much harder life, albeit its easier to bring girls home, but free food, rent and parental love go a long way.

I moved out when I was 18 for college, and haven't moved back. I enjoy my independence, but having to deal with financial woes sucks the big one. I am currently 23, and I have over $50,000 in college debt, rent, utilities, food, a little on the side for going out with the friends. It's rough, but get yourself a decent paying job and things will work out. It sucks that money is so important.

Yeah, I just found out today that our land purchase is final, so I'm going to have to save a ton of money now to make payments on it.

19! I moved out to University and lived there for two years and then after seeing how hard it was without making much money I asked my parents to move back in and I moved back in for two years and then moved out. I learned a lot over the time I moved out.
