    Which time?  >smile

    Seriously, though... about 2 days after I turned eighteen... then again about six months after my 22nd birthday and a couple more times after that.  My ex-husband, (then husband,) and I even had to live with my folks for awhile.

    Age 19, when I married my husband--I had only known him 4 months. Not a wise thing to do, but it worked out.  We've been married 40 years and still have fun together.

    I moved out when I was 22.  I moved in with my boyfriend (now husband) and a female roommate.  She moved out shortly after that and my father didn't find out until 2 years later when we got married.

    As best as I can remember, I was about 3.  I can remember suffering a great burn as a toddler in of the few memories I have as having a Mother in my  early childhood.

    It was my old school    Grandparents who reared me.  My Grandmother died when I was barely 17, two years later, I was both a wife and a mother.

    To this day, I have not truly gotten over her death.

    At 17 for pursuing my engineering, But it is too hard to leave parents and to settle somewhere, not only your emotional and finacial protection gone and you need to counter all problems on your own.

    I moved out at 18 to go to college.  I then never went back for more than a week or two during college.  Though I love them dearly, life is better for us all not living together.

    My hubby was in the military, so it was either get married or say goodbye.  Sixteen years later...I'd say it was a good decision.

    I was 17, moved from a rural town to put myself through a quality university. Packed shelves at night to buy luxury items like noodles, rent and utilities. Hard times, but good times! smile

    I moved out when I got married at 19 (dumb thing to do. Getting married so young, I mean).

    Then I moved back when I was 39 and getting a divorce. Luckily, my parents had a basement apartment I rented and did the yard work. It enabled me to stay close to my son.

    At 48, I moved out again, buying my own place......FINALLY.

    I moved out right after I graduated high school, and I have not been back!  I was 18.  I'm only 21, so who knows if I will end up back there.

    As soon as I went to University, I left my parents house for good.  I'll stay there for a few days here and there during the holidays, but otherwise, I've been out of the house since I was 17.

    I was six when I first moved out. My dad wouldn't let me stay up late to watch a television programme. I can't even remember what programme it was now, but it was important enough to me to cause me to pack a bag and say farewell.

    I got as far as the end of the street! :-)

    I went away to college the same month I turned 18.  The next year I commuted to a nearby college, and at the end of that school year when I was not yet 20 I moved 1500 miles away.  After 6 years away, I moved to with 150 miles of them, but after 2 years I moved another 400 miles away.

    Finally 15 years after I moved out, I moved back to the same area as I grew up.

    I left at 16 before I did my GCSE's... I walked out of the door to go to school one morning and I just knew I wouldn't be walking back throught the door. I didn't until three years later, even then it was a short visit and I was gone again.

    In my part of the world which is the opposite side of USA, it's normal if we stay at our parents' even at 30 unless we get married or go off to college or work far away from home. Though we start providing for the parents by 25 sons or daughters (it is an unsaid agreement). Anyway I was nowhere closer to 30 when I left home.
