Interesting question. It depends on a couple of things. First the age of majority varies from state to state, province to province and country to country. In the US and Canada, the age of majority (when you're legally considered an adult and accountable for yourself). You don HAVE to move out of your parents' house once you turn an adult, but this may be a house rule set up by your legal guardian(s). If you are not enrolled in school (college, university, etc), your guardian's expectation of you is that you must get a job and move out on your own. This may be a cultural tradition, or a family tradition. My daughter is 24 and still lives at home, BUT she pays room & board. The only terms I would accept if she wanted to continue to live at home; school fulltime or work; she chose to wrok and pay room & board. Hope this helps Malcolm
