so without my parents' knowledge, I rented uni accommodation, but althought I already paid the first term's installement and cannot cancel my contract, they are refusing to let me move out. They'd rather see me waste a few thousands pounds and stay at home.
- it is socially unacceptable for kids in my culture to move out (especially since I am a girl)
- As I got mad at this unfairness, I am preparing my stuff and packing, but my mum is really sad (at least, she did not yell, she is just sad to see me go, particularly since I am not on speaking terms with my other siblings, given our numerous fights), and my dad is not talking to me (he swore in the name of God that if I leave, I won't be welcome back!)
I am scared! I am determined to go, but afraid that I won't cope with this marginalisation!

See if you can get someone else to take your room (start by telling the accommodation provider that you want to let it go as they tend to have a list of people waiting for accommodation). In future if you are so adamant that you are going to do something that is against your families beliefs then it is probably a good idea to sit them down (however many times it takes) to discuss it with them.
If you still want to go despite the apparent carnage then good luck to you, but I don't think it's a good idea in the long run.Last edited by Doc.Daneeka; 22-01-2014 at 12:36.

Well. if you can afford university without relying on cash injections from your family, I would probably move out. I have to say though that I'm not strongly attached to my family and wouldn't miss them at all. I don't know if that applies to you. If you are unsure about any of this, then you should probably be cautious and wait with rebellion until after uni when you have a good job.
