Question, why in Norway do people seem to get married and start families more along the time line of when baby boomers did than what their current western counterparts do nowadays?
They don't. You must be drawing on a very small and/or selective sample of observations.
Scandinavians on average have kids later, and fewer of them, than people in the US. This is well-known and well documented.
They may move in together sooner (aka living "samboer" in Norwegian, cohabiting without marriage), particularly in the cities which are increasingly expensive for housing. But if this is different from the US, it is probably due to having less conservative/religious hang-ups about living together outside of wedlock. I don't think they get married any earlier on average.
Lived there, dated, did the samboer thing.
