    While it's not necessarily illegal for you to move out, it may well be illegal for someone else to harbor you if they are an adult, They could be charged with contributing to the delinquency of a minor or interference with custody. On the latter charge, if an adult harbors you out of fear for your general health, a court may be lenient and even drop the charges against them.

    Dude, it's one month. Thirty days and nights. We're not talking years or even months. Surely you can stick it out for one whole month until you turn 18, become a legal adult, and are able to make the decision to live wherever you want.

      Get permission to stay overnight at your friends.
      Due to a recent promotion, I should now be referred to as Major Obvious.

      I would not be trying to provide information and knowledge if I did not sympathize.

      Some days it is just not worth chewing through the restraints to face life.

            That's all well and good that you have a plan, but you are not yet 18. You may not have the legal right to move out on your own.

            I'll guess that your boyfriend is over 18? If so, he could be prosecuted for harboring a runaway, as can his parents if they allow you to move in without your parents' permission. If you are under the legal age of consent, your boyfriend could also face additional charges, including statutory rape and contributing to the delinquency of a minor.

            It doesn't matter what you WANT. If the law requires that you stay with your parents until you reach legal adulthood, you have NO CHOICE in the matter. The only way to get around that is to seek emancipation through the courts (if that's even available to you in your state). You will fail in such a quest, however, under a couple of requirements.

            First, if your parents don't approve of your applying for it, you're done before you've even started, as most states require that the parents submit and/or sign their approval of your application.

            Secondly, to be emancipated, you must already be capable of living independently, which requires you to be self-supporting. It doesn't mean you're going to get a job afterwards, or that you have someone who's willing to pay for your food, rent, and clothing on your behalf. It means you already have a job that pays sufficient wages to provide for your OWN financial needs entirely. You also fail on that requirement, since you are still in school, and your job doesn't even start for another 3 months.

            Last, but not least, an emancipation petition can take several months to process. If you're already almost 18, and if that is the age of majority in your state, then you'll already have reached adulthood before the process even completes. (Strike three, you're out.)

            That being said, since you're ALMOST 18, I would suggest that you just deal with life at home until you turn 18, and THEN you can do whatever you choose.

              I read this as you want to live with your boyfriend, have access to free and easy sex and/or romance.

              There is a good chance that if you move in with your boyfriend you will end up sabotaging your nursing plans. Pregnancy has a way of changing our life plans.

                That is not at all what I want. I am saying that it's a place too live and the fact the we've been together forever and we've talk about that yes if it would too happen but there isn't a change because along with going too school too be a nurse I will also be a starting center midfielder in soccer.. I know that a pregnancy can change everything we don't plain on messing up and making a mistake. We just wanna live together

                  Read my reply above. What you WANT is irrelevant if it is not legally possible. My response details why it can't happen.

                    Apparently she values him more as a bed warmer than a criminal record free provider.

                        What do you mean, "treated like crap"??

                        Were you physically abused in any way? Or were you simply ignored, or disciplined a lot? Not allowed to spend time away from home? Not allowed to do what YOU want and instead were forced to stay home, study, do chores?

                              Really?!?!? THAT'S what you mean by being treated like crap? Honey, you have it pretty good, compared with other far more harsh situations.

                              You haven't gotten "lickends" since you were a little girl, so no physical abuse. No mental abuse either, especially if your idea of mental abuse is not getting to do what you want to when you want to do it.

                              Your parents probably give you more responsibility for family matters as the oldest of five. That's NOT abusive - that's life in a large family. Your sister is being allowed to date? Perhaps her idea of dating is different than yours. You are eager to spend alone time with the boyfriend, which inevitably means getting physical. One wrong move and your life is changed forever, which is what happens with "accidental" pregnancies - especially with underage girls. No, you don't plan on it, but that's when it happens most. And since too many young females think it will never happen to them, they don't make appropriate choices to avoid getting into trouble. (The only birth control method that is 100% effective is ABSTINENCE.)

                              Seriously. You have a few months before you turn 18. Grow up NOW and realize that you don't always get what you want. Better to learn that sooner than later - because when you become an adult, the consequences can be much more severe and long-lasting, since you truly are doing it on your own. You and your boyfriend can do everything you want and more when you turn 18.
