Isn't this what 90% of the teenage population is already doing?


Just a little bit of an exaggeration.

You're 16. You'll come to realise when you're a bit older.

Arr.. It's fine and..
The majority of my siblings have done so or are doing so.. Two got married after living with their partners for over 5 years.
I'm a bastard myself since my parents got married when I was 7.. They'd been together for 15 years or so. xP
I think the main reason they got married is because I told my dad that he couldn't be my dad unless he was married to my mum (I didn't understand how babies were produced, lmfao).
So.. 'illegitimate' is somewhat offensive since there was no disadvantage with me being born. -.-"
But to stop these 'illegitimate' children popping out, there's contraception and abortions.
I've found that my siblings social lives improved after having moved out..
Financial not so much until they got more stable jobs.. But this is only because they now have to pay for all the things they didn't at home.
I don't see any big deal, unless you're talking about someone my age. I wouldn't move out, I'd prefer to save my money, ha ha.


i agree to your statement except on the abortion part...
uhmm, if ever i'll get pregnant, i'll let the child live... with or without a father.

I'm 16 and all the teenagers I know live at home. Why when I'm older will I understand this better?

U already have financial security on your own, and besides u hardly need that you´d have the whole family tree supporting you on both sides.

Oh, same but it's an option some people decide to take.

Because by 18, more than half the average teen population will have left home, or WANT to leave home. Or have become involved in a typical teen relationship that will only end in heartache but they don't realise. =U

Yeah but leaving home and living with a boyfriend/grilfriend isn't the same topic. My sister Jerrie left home at 18 to live with my other sister Claire because Claire's house was closer to Jerrie's work.
I want to leave home now because the location is so bad and far from everything including public transport, it doesn't mean I will.
I think you'll find that 'typical teen relationships' aren't subject only to those who move out and that they're not the only ones that end in heatbreak.

I don't find anything wrong with that given that they have an agreement.

yes they may seem tragically too
inclined with sex but cmon... 90%?!?

thats too much...
i can't even name somebody i know
thats living with their gf/bf...

I think most people that actually live together
without marriage are people that are like
in a serious relationship... where few
teenagers actually have...

Uh... "Or have become involved in a typical teen relationship". Different matter entirely. I mean sure, some of these turn out the right way. But as a teen, people are still naive and have idealistic views about the world. The desire for independence will only get one so far.
