I was pretty much living at FH’s place with his parents since I was 17. Shortly after turned 19 and got engaged we moved to a different city to attend university. I’ll be finishing in a year and we will move back to our home city, but into another apartment for a couple years until we buy a house. We will be married by then and there is NO WAY we are moving back in with our parents at that point haha.

I moved out literally the day after I graduated college at age 22. My fiance and I had been together for 7 years at that point, so we were definitely ready. We both wanted nothing more than to be living together, out on our own and having our own space. Looking back, it wouldn’t have been so bad to stay home for a little longer and save a lot of money but everything is working out well and it’s been 2 years :]

I lived in the dorms at college from 18-20 and lived at home on the weekdns during that time. As soon as I graduated college at 20, I got my own apt. Been living on my own since then.

Mircat:  I moved out when I was 21. I had an “ok” relationship with my parents growing up, but once I graduated we gained alot more respect for each other. My dad called me one day and asked if I was interested in going into an “investment” with them. This “investment” was a house. Houses in our area at the time were at an all time low, so we bought one, I lived there independently and we plan to make a decent profit. My SO now moved in a year ago, and it wasn’t until he was 25 that he moved out. Hopefully your parents understand you’re going through school and your Fiance is going into the miliary, which is going to be a difficult thing on its own. Honestly, sometimes I wish I was still at home with my parents, I’d be saving alot of money! LOL

Whenever we went to college. I was 18 and my SO was 17. We lived in dorms until we were 19 and then we got our first place together, and we are still here. We are about to be 22. We are both full time students. I work part time (like 15 hrs a week) and he is a full time retail manager.

Newly_MrsA:  SO VERY TRUE!! My BFF is 20 and will get married in October. She is not independent and says even though they are building a house, when her husband is at work she will be at her moms house…. I don’t think that’s how it works, but she will learn soon enough.

I moved out when I was 20 and going to college and then Fiance (then BF) and I got our apartment when I was 21 and he was 25. Fiance was still living at home before we moved in together. Now we are almost 24 and 28 and living happily in our apartment. Hopefully I can get a teaching job and we can start looking for something bigger.

I commute to school. SO and I lived with our parents until I was 20 and he was 22. We just moved in together about 6 months ago. We have known that we wanted to live together ASAP since we started dating five years ago, but it wasn’t possible for us to live at the standard we required the minute I turned 18. We had originally planned to move in together as soon as I graduated, but we would have ended up in a total dump barely making ends meet. We waited until my SO graduated from college since he now has a full time job. I’m almost done with school as well, so things are only a little tight for another year or so before I can work full time as well!

I moved out at 18 for university, and moved back after graduation at 22. DH (bf at the time) lived at home through school. We got engaged and bought a house at 25 and moved in at age 26. In my circle it is normal to live at home and save save save until ready to buy a home/get married. Most friends lived at home until at least age 25.

Mircat:  I moved out right after I graduated high school at 18 and Fiance moved out (the same time I did) at 20.  We moved into an apartment together and have been paying all bills together for two years.  It’s worked out great, and both families have always been incredibly supportive.

DH and I moved from NJ to IN togehter in 2008 after graduating high school. We were both 18 (a couple of months shy of 19), and had been dating since we were 15. A year prior to our high school graduation, DH and I spoke openly with our parents to let them know we wanted to get married, and that we were serious about making a life together. When DH decided where he wanted to attend college, we began looking for homes, and he and his parents bought one, which we moved into and still live in currently. DH and I have paid the mortgage and all bills solely since moving in. We were engaged about 6 months after moving in together, and by the time we were married, we had been together 7.5 years, engaged for 3.5, and living together for 4 years. 

The move was definitely something I felt I needed at the time, as just months prior, my family lost my childhood home, which had been in my family for generations, to foreclosure. Ultimately, making this move was the best decision I ever made. My parents and youngest brother followed us out a few years later, and other family members are contemplating a move out to IN as well. Honestly, NJ will always be home, but it is way too expensive there to live life the way it should be.

Today, we are both 24, following our dreams independently and as a pair, and trying to start a family. It hasn’t always been easy, but we are thankful for all we’ve learned living on our own. We are very happy, fiercely in love, and driven by future possibilities.

I moved out at 18 to attend out of state college. Been living on my own since then, as I worked all through college. DH and I moved in together after dating a year and its now been almost 4 years living together!

My dad was a single parent and raised me to be super independent so I have always been financially supporting myself, same with DH.

Mircat:  I moved out when I was 21 and him when he was 24… BUT we were living on school loans (while in school) so I don’t even know if that counts. I guess you just do whatever you have to do however you can. If neither of you has a source of income, there’s not much of a choice to make now, right? And also, you are taking the right steps you need to get where you want to go- that’s the most important thing! Life doesn’t always work out perfectly, but if you keep yourself moving, you will get somewhere where you want to be, whether it’s the place of your wildest dreams or something you never imagined but just as incredible!

I moved out at 19, 22, 25 and 27! I kept trying to go but it’s only now that we both have full time permanent jobs that I actually feel like we’re properly moved out and neither of us will have to move home again, my fiance obviously feels the same as he proposed within a week of us signing the lease on our new flat 🙂
