So, someone who moves out, is 25 and gets a stipend from his parents for groceries or rent is still a child? Interesting. 18 is an adult, regardless of financial situation.

I certainly wouldn't consider them a mature adult.
Eighteen is adult by law. Whether you choose to become one is up to you.

RE: Conflict With Catholic Parents
Ok, but we agree, this guy is an adult. Maturity has nothing to do with your statement.

If your parents are fine with you being atheist but not fine with you joining some atheist group, then don't. It's not a religion, so who cares? Make them happy, get your ride and life back.

Check out my atheism blog. It's just a blog, no ads, no revenue, no gods.

Honestly, everyone I met in college who had a boyfriend/girlfriend when they arrived at college, freshman year, did not have one by the end of that year.

college is a time for growing up, maturing, pushing boundaries, and finding who YOU are, and to learn about people who are different from you. Don't go to college to play house with your girlfriend. You can't support yourself, don't drag her down with you.

It gets suffocating, especially when one person is clinging on, and the other person is ready to move on.

if your relationship is strong enough to last thru college, then it is strong enough for you to go to separate schools and live in separate dorms. give her wings to fly into the person she's meant to me.

And what if it's what they both want?

Then they should take out school loans, get jobs and bus passes and do it on their own.

Seems ridiculous to expect to live off/ mooch off of your parents then turn around and whine when there are strings attached.

You're 18. You want yo be an adult? Act like one.
They don't owe you anything. Everything they give you from now on should be appreciated because it's a gift.

I find it hard to believe that the parents that would force you to go to mass every Sunday are the same ones that said they would pay for you to shack up with your girlfriend your first semester of college.
Consider

normally, I'm VERY supportive in this section, but this one….hmmm??

I think you have a lot of things going on…

-therapy for whatever
-new high school
-lost your religion
-found a new religion
-fighting with your parents

I'm sure its stressful. I would get those things settled before worrying about the next step.

I don't think he thinks they owe him anything. I think he is stressed because of the limitations they have put on him.

See, the problem is, is that he is at the stage where you are supposed to think about the next step. He is eighteen (and a senior in Highschool), and by that time, college is a thing that should be on his mind. Should he fix the other things. Definitely, but if he makes them the focus, he will be left behind.

basically, the timing is shit for him.

RE: Conflict With Catholic Parents
Your parents sound like a pair of manipulative cunts. That said, there is no "atheistic religion." Tell them you have decided not to join it but you fear for your own asshole if you go near a catholic priest again.

What you believe is strictly up to you.
