@Missus_LLC:  That is what this place is for, so vent away!  I think it sounds like you are making the healthiest decision by moving out, and I think in time every one will realize that!! Yes, leaving your home for the first time can be very scary, but very liberating as well.  Your parents should not be ‘angered’ by your decision, nor should you feel bad.  It just sounds that tensions are high for the time being.  If you and your Fiance make a plan, then you will be a-ok.  Your parents/family are NOT going anywhere 🙂  Also, you said you would have to quit if you move, bc your mom watches your child?!  Couldn’t that still work when you move, except now you would be dropping your baby off to her?! 

Good luck!!

I’m sorry you’re dealing with this. I think it can be really hard for an adult child to live with their parents. In some cultures it’s the norm and things are fine, but here I often find that it’s hard. I moved back in with my mother when she was diagnosed with terminal uterine cancer and even though I loved her and was so happy to have that time with her, living together was hard at times. Not all the time. But I had gotten used to only being accountable to myself. And while she never tried to set any rules for me, it was still hard, at times, to incorporate her into my life and decision making. It worked out and I’m glad I did it, but I can totally understand how hard it can be to live with family. You can still be close even if you aren’t living with each other. It may be hard at first, but I think it’s probably better in the long run. Good luck!
