The general consensus is that it was not the norm for couples to wed at such 
a young age.  The fact that the baptism records may not indicate the true age 
of the child is an interesting concept.  My grandfather's birth certificate 
and baptism certificate from the very same area were the same, but that would 
have been 1891.  Perhaps the 1870s there not as many places available to 
register births.  I will definitely take a look at the film for Christian Haupt's 
birth record (or baptism) in Gottliebsdorf.

Thanks again,
