How old were you when you moved out of your parents house?

I moved out to go to college at 17 but of course came back home for holidays and such. I technically moved out completely when I got married (much too young) at 19.

Thanks... moving out at 21 to study abroad is definitely courageous!

I was actually kicked out when I was 13 yrs old....funny thing is, my mothers then husband drove me to my destination with my bags, my crutches (I'd had surgery) and dropped me off on the doorstep but then the next day they called Family and Childrens Service saying I had run away and was being held against my will! Little did they realize that the lady living downstairs SAW them drop me off LOL

I moved out when I was 19. I loved living away from home at the time, but looking back I think I would have liked to have stayed at home for longer.

I moved out when I was 18 and went off to college. Though I was "home" for college breaks and stuff, I never technically moved back in again.

I moved out at 18 for college, but I came back for holidays. I went home at 22 and stay there for two more years. Bad idea! Now I live on my own. And have 6 years.

I went away to college and had my own apartment at 17. At 19 I had to move back until I moved away to get married at 23. I really liked having my own place, and when I moved back I found it hard because I had developed my own way of doing things.

I stayed at home until my marriage when I was twenty four. I love my husband, but I felt dreadfully lonely as I missed coming home from work every day to my mum and dad.

I was 20 when I moved out of my parents house. I attended a local technical college after high school, so I just stayed with my parents instead of going to school and trying to pay for rent. I would have moved out a lot sooner if it hadn't been for school.

I was 28 when I officially move out of my parents house as I was saving up to buy my house back then. I did go away for college for a couple of years earlier in my life and then moved out when I paid off my car and had enough money to put down on my townhouse.

I actually moved out of our house when I was 21 and got my own apartment. My parents sold the house and got themselves a small apartment as well. When I was 23 I lived with my parents for a short time frame because my mom had taken ill and I wanted to be around to take care of her.
