I am currently doing a bathroom. My wife wanted a light fixture which requires a octagnal box. Currently I had a square box with a vanity strip which the builder installed probably against code on the opposite side of the stud I want to put my octagonal box on. The vent runs through this stud area in my way for my box. My question is can I re rout this in the wall with lets say 3 x 45 elbows? If so would I use a union to re attach or just a coupling and try to move it? Here's a pic. It's looks like 1 1/2".

p.s. not all i say is a fact but not all i say is my opinion.

You may put a set of fittings together to give you the room you need---to make things easier use one rubber Fernco fitting--that's a rubber 'boot' with two hose clamps--the other 90s or 45s can be glued fittings.
Vent pipes must be able to drain so do it in such a way that no water can get trapped in a low spot--
