    If I'm 17 and I get my GED can I move out with my 19 year old boyfriend? Legally without getting him into any legal trouble. We have been together for a little over 2 years. Can I move out without parental consent or permission?

    No. Not until you are 18. 17 is not 18 lite, as a previous poster used to say.

    Having your GED has nothing to do with it. Without knowing anything about you I can assure you that you are better off to stay at home as long as you can. Don't be in such a rush to ruin your life.

    Believe it or not, you will be 18 before you know it - time goes fast though it may not seem so at your age. When you are 18, you can move where you want without parental consent.
