By young I mean ages 18 to 24.
In Europe people usually marry in their late 20s or early 30s but rarely when they're hardly real grow ups !
I find it so odd when I hear from 18 year-olds getting married and even have children !
so, why is that?

They don't really. The average age in the US is 27 for women and 29 for men.
There are places that marry younger in the US; typically it's less educated and lower class people. Also the south/bible belt and small towns.
The US is pretty diverse in terms of norms. I'm from the East Coast and the only person I know getting married is my roommate who is already financially independent with a job, a house, and 2 cars. Everyone else is planning on getting married around 30.1
