  • I moved out when I was 18 I think its just something older teens talk about to be independent

  • Yes because it's perfectly natural for an 18-19yo who is not in high school and who is not in college to want their own space. My older 2 moved out at 19 and my younger 2 will be going away to college next year.

  • I moved out when I became pregnant at 17, 2 weeks after I graduated. I have been on my own since. We recently moved in with my grandma to help her out and save while we are trying to get our house built.

  • I moved out the day I graduated. I even worked my ass off so I could graduate early. But I was engaged and wanting to start my life with my husband.

    My brother on the other hand turns 20 this year and still has no where else to go.

  • I moved to my bf's house right after i turned 17 and we got an apartment 6 months later. Only because I was pregnant and my mom didn't have space. (She didn't tell me to leave but I wanted to be able to have my baby live with me.)

  • I moved out when I was 18. I didn't go to college but had a job and paid my way through life before my husband moved in with me.
