Yes, young women did get married quite young! Both of
my maternal great grandmothers had early marriages, my
maternal grandmother's parents were 13 and 15 when
they married. My maternal grandfather's mother died
at age 30 >from complications after her 6th child, the
oldest was in his mid teens at the time. Once girls
reached puberty it was considered time for them to
marry.
