I'm talking about 18 and up. Not younger than that.

As someone who did get married young, my opinion might be a little biased, but I think it's a bad idea.
At that age, rushing into something like that doesn't give you time to really think about what you're doing. You don't really have an appreciation for the consequences.2

I'm think it's foolish to make a permanent decision at such a young age. I mean sure, it's not *actually* permanent since divorce is a thing, but when getting married it should be done seriously, as if it was permanent for real. There's no thinking "oh well, if this fucks up I can always divorce them and get a new partner", you know.
A teen/young adult isn't fully matured or their own person yet. Hence, they shouldn't be making such decisions when for all we know they could be a completely different person within the next couple of years. Not only that, but there's no point in "settling down" so soon, young people should focus on their education first, as well as getting a job, getting their own place, living on their own for a while etc. It's about finding yourself as much as it is about creating stability in your life.4
