    Why do you think girls become fertile before they are old enough to marry and be responsible?

    Because it isn't just about being fertile. Young women begin to slowly change into grown women physically and sexually. It is a slow process so fertility is just a part of it as the ovaries mature and a young women begins to menstruate. 

    It isn't an overnight process.

    Think back in history. When did women used to get married? Right when they became fertile. The entire point of human existence was to reproduce. Women were considered property and methods for reproduction. While the reasons are no longer the same, we still have to deal with fertile females before they are of legal age to marry. Even worse, females are being fertile at younger ages.

    The same reason a12 year old has to wait until they are old enough to drive. The body and mind do not mature in just one instant, a 12 year old may be able to look over the wheel and reach the pedal but they do not have the maturity to handle a vehicle and be safe as well as responsible. As a young girl transitions into woman hood the body has to do it in stages, so that eventually it will be able to pass on life through childbirth. It is true that it is possible for a young teenager to become pregnant as young as 12 or 13 but it is also true that when this happens the chances increase greatly of giving birth to an unhealthy baby. The pregnant teenager also faces an increased in risk in dying while she gives birth. Due to the lack of experience in life , especially if she does not have a supportive family more mistakes are committed thru mother hood which these mistakes sometimes turn out to be harmful to the baby and sometimes even deadly. Interestingly enough the bible calls this time "the bloom of youth" (1Corinthians 7:36) How appropriate. If you have any other questions please let me know or you can visit www.jw.org

    Because the body's changes do not always correlate to modern society's views on marriage laws/age of responsibility.

    The female body enters puberty at the age it does for evolutionary reasons, probably. The lifespan of humans was relatively short less than a hundred years ago, so to engage in successful procreation, it had to be done early. People mentally matured much earlier back then because there was no choice - life was hard, so the ignorant bliss of childhood wasn't encouraged for long.

    Society is a lot different now though, medical advances and better diet have expanded the lifespan for people living in developed countries. We have a better understanding of how the brain develops as well and the consequences of that at each stage of life. We're also overpopulated to the point that we don't need lots of young girls pushing out babies to save the species, so now girls are considered actual human beings with more value than their reproductive capabilities.
