As far as the practice is concerned, being a monastic is just an optimal set of conditions and tradition that aides in developing the path to fruition. That should be the one and only reason you should consider going forth: you're ready to make the practice your full-time job.
You don't need to wear a robe and take up the patimokkha to practice. If this is something in your future then it's in your future, just practice for now. The previous answer a user left about staying for an extended time in a meditation retreat setting is the best thing you can do. "But I can't get that time off" has only one solution: get your ducks in a row first and just do it. If it's really that important to you then you can leave a job with the knowledge a new one can be obtained if needed. Have a plan. Entrust someone back home with money in case your fantasies about being a monk aren't all they're cracked up to be when you're looking into an alms bowl full of whatever could be spared, laying in a tin-roofed hut sick with malaria, or are simply bored because you can't watch TV or listen to music anymore.
Finish whatever you have going on right now for sure. Keep in mind things that will be difficult for you to do once you're homeless and penniless like: proper dental care, taking care of aging parents, etc etc.
