"I think you might have something here. I followed a similar path, married at 21, went to college at 23 and just had our first child at 28. Nothing crazy but it definitely had some unique challenges and blessings. Let me know how I can help."

"OK:  lack of respect, lack of maturity, and to a lesser degree, lack of money.  Thank you:  I get it now. You might get posts that are helpful on the first two of these from men who did not marry young as well."
