It's very common in TSCC. Especially among returning missionaries at BYU. Heck, that's what most of them go there for is to get hitched.
If they don't right out of their mission, there must be something amiss.
My oldest bro came home from his mission, went to BYU Ricks at first. Was engaged 2-3 times. Either he or the girl would break it off. Then he transferred to BYU Provo where he was engaged another two times before he met his future wife. They dated only for two weeks when they became engaged. Were married within 2-3 months, no later.
She got prego on their honeymoon. He dropped out of college to support her and the new family on the way. He didn't return to college until after baby three had come along and they were financially strapped so much it was either sink or swim.
He told me at the time he went back as he couldn't have his little sister showing him up. I was the first sibling to have my college degree, and the only girl in my family. It is sort of funny, but my brother could well have meant it. We were pretty competitive as kids.

What could be more natural than speed skating your way into a blissful marriage, ordained of god, lasting throughout all time and eternity.......until you think your way out of what got you there in the first place and start hanging out on RFM, spending untold hours following the very thing which you despise.
I could have gotten married in less than three months if I wanted to marry the guy I briefly dated at BYU whose ambition was to be a seminary teacher and have lots of children. He was so uber TBM he didn't think it was appropriate to kiss until we were engaged. No thank you.
After I rejected him he quickly moved onto the next coed who had to hide every time she saw him coming. He would stalk his victims, waiting outside the classroom.
I lost track of him until I ran into him about three years later. He was still single, still trying to find someone who would say "yes." He was a nice looking, intelligent RM guy but managed to turn off most TBM women. Raising 8 children on a seminary teacher's salary just isn't very appealing.
