  • I moved into a college dorm when I was 17, but I returned home for some holidays and sometimes for summer vacation. I didn't live there full time, however, after that. I got married at 23 and moved out permanently then.

  • 18 because I was going to college but then I lived at home during the summers and for a year after graduation so not really until I was 23 then it was because I had gotten a job about an hour away and needed to get my own apartment.

  • At 15 I got an apartment with my boyfriend, now hubby (together 24 years).

    I moved out because I could NOT get along with my step mom.

  • Which home? LOL...I was a foster kid.
    I became independent after I graduated high school when I was 18 years old. No more checks from the state means there is no longer a welcome mat at the foster home. :)
