Few people understand relationships or love, or themselves for that matter, sufficiently to reach productive, happy equilibrium 
before a starter marriage or two.  Or equivalent dating / living-with time, at least past 25 or maybe even 30.

It seems that many college kids in California mostly get the idea that relationships should be play for a long time before you 
get serious if you want to increase chances of being successful.  Having a child and/or getting married early, or even coupling 
up strongly too early, is usually seen as an odd choice.
