I believe in a couple states, in the South? some can get married young.
UP to 1962 in the USA the age of Consent was 12 except Delaware which was 7 years old
that was why Elvis Presley could sleep with a 13 year old Legally
Some did, in some societies, in some parts of the world. And that also applies today.
Some did indeed
Not only women... Men also. And it had purely to do with the fact that people only lived to about 30-40 years of age.
Many dod, the poorer girls usually married a later than wealthier girls.
Until about the 1980s, girls would often be expected to get married (if of or above the minimum age) if they got pregnant. In the UK, this would be from 16. In countries where the minimum age was lower, it might be 14. There were some who married in their teens however, although they didn't have to.
Just over 100 years ago a male aged 14 years old was considered to be a man.
I lost a 14 year old female freshman classmate to (?) 'rushed' circumstance in a 1967 marriage.
Many did as marriage was seen as the aim of all females. They were seen as 2nd class people whose job in the world was to serve the needs of their man in food preparation, keeping the house clean, and having and caring for their children. Women were discouraged from working as that was seen as the man's thing to do bringing home the money for the family. Young women were paid half the wage of men as it was expected single women did not have a family to support and if they married were dismissed as it was seen as the man's job to bring home the wage.
Even in the 1980s I knew of families who believed their daughters should be marrying before they were 20y/o and pushed their daughters into marriages. By the time women were still unmarried by their mid 20s parents became quite concerned and would start arranging meetings trying to start a relationship.
