Should I stay or should I go?
I come from a family where traditionally, the woman gets married to move out of her home. Unfortunately, my father is extremely over protective and I have grown to respect him for trying to protect me over the years. However, I am turning 20 next year, and he gives me a 10 pm curfew, even on the weekends; I can't sleepover friends' houses or my boyfriend's house either. He refuses to meet my boyfriend because he is much older than me and he has never thought anyone is good enough for me (which most fathers also feel). I have been dating my boyfriend for a year and he is getting a new place soon, and I feel stumped between whether or not I should move out with him (we have a very good & healthy relationship & have talked seriously on moving in together) or I should wait till marriage to leave. Regardless of the choice, my dad is in a way expecting me to move out by 21 so I can live my life without his regulations & so I can live my life according to how I want to. I have discussed this with my dad, he says "his house his rules" so there's no say in this for me trying to change the rules. Is the healthiest decision to move out when I graduate in a few months? Or should I just put up with my dad?
