It's almost like we needed a scapegoat for the change to be accepted, like how the George Lazenby James Bond movie is less well received even though one could argue that it's a much more coherent story than many of the other movies...

Up until late 19th century, the age of sexual/marriage majority matched being a biological adult.
The idea that marriage is now much later than it used to be is a common misconception, at least for Europe and the US. Really, the outlier in (relatively) recent history was the post-WWII era, when age of first marriage dropped sharply from the levels of the late 19th and early 20th century. In 1890, average age of first marriage for women in the US was 23.5, and 26.5 for men. http://www.census.gov/hhes/socdemo/marriage/data/acs/ElliottetalPAA2012figs.pdf In the late 18th century, average age was 20-22 for women, ~26 for men. http://www.amazon.com/Marriage-England-1500-1800-Abridged-footnotes/dp/0061319791/ref=sr_1_3?ie=UTF8&qid=1327690657&sr=8-3

"Forget the recent invasions of other countries, the US destabilized a democratic government and installed their own puppet dictator in Iran just over thirty years ago."
The coup against Mosaddegh was 60 years ago, not 30 (1953). Also, the dictator (the Shah) was already there.
