How Old Were You When You Permanently Left Home And Started Living Independently?

Wicked Wahine Wicked Wahine
In an earlier poll, I asked what people think is the appropriate age for children to leave home. Now I'm asking what age you were when you left home, (that is, if you have).

Please feel free to comment, it's difficult to cover all the bases when selecting poll choices.

I stayed with my parents until 38!!! (I was ill)

My siblings used to tease me and say that even Jesus left at 33!

Left, had to go back for a few months...left again! HOPE i'm out for god, now!
I could take care of myself now, if we were to break up (my man and I), NOT that it would happen!

I had my own place in college but moved home. I moved out like a big girl when I was 25.

I was seventeen when I actually moved out. My parents had me keep my permeant address at their place for tax purposes.

When I return to North America I usually live with my mother.

I was 19 when I left my family's apartment, and I haven't returned since and I will NOT move back in ever. My mother and I can't get along to save our lives if we live together.

Its a funny story with us. I had my boyfriend move into my parents house when I was 19(I thought they could use the money and renting without a credit score is almost impossible).
Then someone told us a place that's hard to get into with a great location opened up and we've been here since, Gotten married, and plan on staying as long as possible. Still in our first place.
