    For good? 21. After I came back from deployment I moved into my college town permanently. From 17-21 I was only in my dad’s home for a few months at a time, due to school and my inevitable deployment. We felt it was better for me since I would have had to move out of whatever apartment I was in and place my stuff in storage anyway.

    I moved out at 20.  I moved out of my parents house, into my grandparent’s home for 4 months. But after that I was on my own.

    I’ll be 27 when I move out becuase I’ve been busy with school. I know a little older then usual but I couldn’t move out, they wont allow you to work during your professional year :/ Otherwise I probably would’ve by now hehe

    I moved away to college at 17, but I don’t count that because I was not 100% financially independent then. They still paid for my school, insurances, phone bill. I did pay my own living expenses while I was there though And had an apartment junior and senior year I paid for  

    I said 21 because that’s when I graduated and got a full time career and have been 100% financially independent from that point. I live 4 hours from them and bought my own house at 24.

    Moved out for college at 18, but my parents financially supported me through undergrad. My college didn’t really do dorms, so I was in an apartment with roommates. Lived with my parents for 6 weeks between graduating and moving internationally for a job and have been bouncing around the globe since. 

    My Fiance and I are nearly 30 now and plan to leave Europe and move back “home” (i.e. the area of the US that I grew up in) within the next 5 years so that our future kids are near extended family. Since we’ll be moving to be closer to my family (and not career moves like all our past moves have been), it’ll be the first international move we’ll do in which we may not have jobs lined up on arrival. Because of that, we fully plan on moving in with my parents until we can get ourselves on our feet – find employment , find and set up an apartment, purchase vehicles, etc. We’re anticipating like 3-6 months.

    We’re actually looking forward to it since we’re all really close and it’s now been nearly 10 years since I’ve lived in the same country as my parents. It will be nice to spend a good chunk of time together. There is definitely no “being ruled” or “treated like a child” with them though, they’ve treated me as an adult since I was a senior in high school and I definitely don’t “use” them for laundry, cooking, bills, etc — it’s understood that we’re all adults and we respect one another accordingly (and have a lot of fun together at the same time).

    I definitely think there are people who abuse parental generosity. I also think there are plenty of people who moving back in with their parents makes the most sense for everyone given the situation. To each their own!

    Moved out at 18 but I will move back home in January after my lease ends.  My Fiance and I are searching for places but I won’t move in with him until we’re married so I’ll be with the fam for about 7 months!

    Wow I can’t believe how young everyone was! I’m 27 and still living at home. Waiting to save up some more money before Fiance and I move out together. I live in Orange County, CA and it’s super expensive here. Not sure how most of you who were 18 or so were able to afford it. I sure wouldn’t have been able to!

    I left home for school at 18, but didn’t officially move out (I still lived there on holiday and during the summer) until I was 23. Moved back in when I was 24 for about 6 months, but then moved out for good.
