  • 16 wishing to move away from home with my boyfriend

    I am 16 and a half, I want to move in with my LDR boyfriend who lives 6 hours away. We have been together for a year or so, but have always been close for 3 years prior to dating. I have a small job and have been saving for the past 6 months or so. I do not attend school anymore, however I am enrolled in an online nursing course, so it would not pose an issue if I moved. My bf already has a house that he shares with 2 of his friends, it is very affordable and I am welcome whenever. It is also easy to get a job in the town so I'm not worried there. I have no issues at home, and my parents are lovely, I'm just hoping for their support and to say at the least i am a little nervous. And I am aware that Australia has no legal age for moving, is there anything I should be aware of or any advice you have?
