Another fact you might consider is that the sexually speaking, age of consent would be seventeen in Texas. In Texas, minors have to be a minimum of 16 years old to be able to petition in order to be "emancipated" from their parents. There are obviously many strict guidelines and rules listed in this regard.

Please you don't move out in a huff or on bad terms. Talk with your parents before moving and if you need to leave, do so on the best terms possible. Leaving in anger is just not worth it. Bear in mind that possibly you could have trouble in obtaining an apartment lease when you don't have any parental cosigning.
