What causes early marriage?

The most common and obvious causes would be pregnancy and puppy love. They think they truly love each other and completely ignore the fact that both of them are going to grow more mature and perhaps into different people. Impulsiveness and the legal rights to marriage result in early marriages, though there are laws in many countries, including the United States, that set minimum ages to get married without parental consent and/or court permission.

In many regions under arranged marriages, children are mentally pressured by parents and families to get married, and it is not seen wrong for them to act on their parents' choices of husbands/wives.
