Probably about six months after I get my first proper job, depending on pay etc. I am hoping this will be about this time next year.
Never. I am waiting for my parents to move out.
If i have a decent job by the time i'm 18 or 19 then i'll move out then. If not then when i do or when i get married or get a serious bf.
As far as I'm concerned, I moved out when I started university - going back during the holidays was just an enforced visit to my parents! Now I'm on a 37-week lease, however, I really have moved out. All the stuff I actually want to keep is now here with me at uni, and I'll go straight from here to a flat in London when I finish. I quite surprised my dad a while back by asking him to give me a lift "home" - meaning to uni!
im already out of my parents house coz i burnt the last one down.
next year, hopefully going to a boading school.
i cant believe u people wanna move out of home like u do. (if any of u live near an indian area, go 2 your local video shop and rent out a film called baghban, its bound 2 have subtitles).
I live in a typical indian joint family and i love it. Thereis my grandad, my mum and dad, me, my 2 brothers, three of my dads brothers with their wives, and then there 7 children, 2 wives of cousins, and one nephew, so there are 22 of us altogether, and i cannot imagine living by myself or with a wife. when i go uni, im going 2 enjoy the 3 years of "freedom" to the max. However after the three years i should go back home, and do my duty as a son. Im guessing most peoples parents on this site are around 45-55 and in about 10-15 years time they will start having walking problems and getting ill. Surely we should be there to look after them at this time?
Especially with the way most of your families are (the normal mum, dad and kids family) it is even more important to stay at home. If you are from a single parent family, if you move out, why would you just leave your mum/dad to stay at home by themself? If you have both parents at home, i dont mean to be morbid, but then chances are one of them will die before 70, and then the other one will be by themself. I cannot imagine having my 70yr old mum/dad living by themselves somewhere whilst im out enjoying life, the fact is i wouldnt be able to enjoy my life! Imagine when we are elderly, when we struggle to walk up the stairs, never mind go and do the shopping, how will we manage without the help of our children?
My parents have already sat my sisters and me down (24,21 and 18 yrs old) and they said "You know you're not moving out of the house until your married?!"
