Mormons.

There is some like, thing, where by the age of 18 they have to have a spouse picked out. (at least the women I think). Anyhoo, sweet girl I know, very nice, damn near completely innocent. I refuse to call what happened dating, but a SO was selected, and things were good for maybe a year or so.

Hits 18, they break up, panic.

A couple months later, another SO is selected. Engaged in less than 6 months.

Shes over the moon about "her man", so I suppose she's happy... but damn.

how the hell does that work?

I haven't the foggiest, I don't even know how the SO are selected, but neither of them came from our school, and were out of state... and I wouldn't put arranged marriages outside of the Mormon church's practices. It wouldn't surprise me.   
   
Now we wait for an actual Mormon to set me straight.

What are you talking about? Where did you hear that?

The only special things that happen at age 18 is:
You can go on your mission (travel somewhere for 2 years)
Gain the melchizedek priesthood (the second after Aaronic, gained at 12)

Girls go on the mission at age 19

However it is a joke often said "If you're 25 years old, and unmarried, you're a menace to society". Again though, that's just a joke in a movie.

Speak of the devil and he shall appear! (sorry, laughing to hard at this)
Anyhoo, Im totally open to the idea that I have my head up my ass on this, but the big mormon church is right in my backyard, my school was full of them, generally really nice people (occasional sour apple, but for the most part, those were the Catholics).

All I "know" is there was a lot of pressure for all the young women to be set to be married right out of Highschool. Every one of them (the literal meaning of the term) had some boyfriend they were keen on marrying, even if the relationship was shaky at best.

Well I can't vouch for the girls, no matter what religion they think what they want.

If its any consolation, my sister (mormon) got married at age 18.
She wasn't rushing for it, total sap story about how she knew him from his mission, but she did get married young.

Point is, there is no tradition, standard, or teaching telling people of the church to get married at a young age. Men are pressured to go on a mission at 18 though.

Interesting. But good to know.

I believe I knew that about the men, I had a friend who didn't bother trying to set up a life for after Highschool, knowing he was going on a mission. But like, a couple weeks into it, he had some recessive muscle degenerative disease kick in. Sapped all his strength, and they sent him home. He had no idea what to do with himself.

Going on a mission is something that all LDS adults talk about and train us younger than 18 for until we reach that age. Being told you can't after all that time, work, and all that pressure is devastating.
