Teen pregnancy is a different story. that's been around for ages. My issue is people seem like they are getting engaged before they are even 25 nowadays I realized. Its all over Facebook, current high school grads showing off their engagement rings like its a new pair of shoes. I call it an epidemic. Why? Because we have our entire lives to be engaged, and/or married. Why do it now? We're living longer, til 90s and 100s and we're rushing to be wedded...its pathetic. I just feel like the divorce rate will go crazy in the next 10-15 years because so many kids wanna get married. What do you think?

Because we're highly sexual creatures, and also highly social, and part of our evolutionary social development has programmed us to seek out a mate as soon as we hit our childbearing years.
In light of that, I think it's pretty damn amazing that people are able to hold off for as long as they do. The social acceptability of sex before marriage probably has a lot to do with it.
And I wouldn't necessarily consider Facebook the prime example of social norms.2
