I've just noticed that most of the young girls I know who are engaged or married tend to be not as attractive as the young girls I know who are single but get lots of attention from a variety of guys or have many shorter relationships. Maybe it's just the girls I know. My apologies if anyone is offended, it is just my personal observation and of course there are always exceptions.

I don't know, as what you observe starts to becoming opposite of what I observe as we start working towards later age groups where the ones who seem destined to stay single for the rest of their lives aren't necessarily the most attractive.
In general I think it's harder for attractive people to establish a serious relationship. Note that I don't define "attractive" here by how good someone looks in a photo, but how much attention they get from the opposite sex (simpler definition and more useful in this context).
Girls who get a ton of male attention (and therefore "attractive" by my definition above) might tend to be more picky about commitment. Same for guys who get a ton of female attention. If a guy can have just about any girl he wants, chances are he's not going to be falling madly in love with the first girl he dates. Any curiosity he has that there could be someone more suitable for him who makes him happier can easily be pursued with another girl, and another girl, and another girl until he finds one who is outstanding in every way he wants. I don't know the female mindset quite as well but I would imagine it's not so different for a girl who can have any guy she wants.
Yet as both of these get older, if their attention from the opposite sex begins to decline with age, they might more readily fall in love or "settle" with one they didn't fall madly in love with. That or, they might simply have had enough time to really find "the one" who seems better than all others in their history of partners.1

I'm not sure if I'd say that's true or false. It probably falls into a big grey area. A grey area where in some cases, more of the 'less attractive girls' get engaged/married than the supermodel-like girls simply because the former group is not only more confident as they don't rely entirely on their good looks quite as much, but are also more willing to settle.
