Back then thats how it was...Baby...married all before you were 18
So why is it such a big deal now
why has the world changed so much and became that stereotypical?

Could you define "back then"? 1950? 1850? 1750?
And I totally agree - the parents have to have a huge portion of the blame. I am looking at my SIL's darling daughter, my niece, and I just want to scream. I know that girl is going to get pregnant and my SIL is doing NOTHING to stop it. So maddening! I even asked my niece during their last visit down "Are you having sex" and she of course immediately said "Oh noooooo....."....and yes, I should trust her. But holy moses I want someone holding MY daughter accountable if I'm ever all mopey and not up to it.
She is a freshman and her boyfriend is a junior - he and I actually talked on the phone and I said "The shirt stay on and the legs stay closed" . He laughed and seemed like a nice guy - but they ALL seem like nice guys.
Rambling, I know.
Anyway, pregnancy at ANY age is a BIG DEAL so in conclusion 1) the question does not specify the timeline in question and 2) the question misuses the word stereotypical.

Next question overall
How long should I wait to have another baby after this one?
