How much time passed since Subhadra's marriage to Arjuna and the famous dice game in Hastinapur? Was Abhimanyu born right after their marriage or a few years later? 

Once we know that, we just need to add 13 years to know his age at the time of war, since the war happened right after the vanvaas right? Or did some more time pass?

From what I have read , he died a teenager in battle , most accpetable figure is 16 yrs

I was searching for Stories on Abhimanyu and Ghatokach , instead found the story of Another Wife of Abhimanyu , about which till date , I had no idea she even existed , I thought only Uttara was his wife.

It's a folk story, Shivam, and mainly popular in the South. You can watch "Mayabazaar" the telugu movie to see this story onscreen. We don't know if Sesirekha existed or not, as Veda Vyasa only mentions Uttara as Abhimanyu's wife, but it's possible she existed since the folk story says Abhimanyu married her during the Pandavas' vanvaas. She would've been his first wife then.

However, if Abhimanyu truly was a young boy when he was killed, and not in his 30s like some sources claim, then he'd have been a child at the time of his marriage to Sesirekha, thereby not making much sense.

She is also popularly know as vatsala

This story doesn't really show Balaram in a good light though. I don't think he'd ever have been so cruel to his own sister.

Maybe Vatsala/Sesirekha did exist, but the actual story might be different from the folk story.

After all, Veda Vyasa does not right about Devika either, who was Yudhisthir's second wife.

Akka,even I had seen an animated movie Ghatotkach which revolved around Abhimanyu's marriage to Shashirekha.And the Amar Chitra Katha comic on Ghatotkach also tells this story.Only difference was that Shashirekha's name was changed to Vatsala.
And as much as I know about Abhimanyu and Uttara,then both of them were in their teens when they got married.Probably 16 or something.

In my opinion,this is very much a folktale.Because if Shashirekha existed,then why doesn't any account mention her later on?Where was she after Abhimanyu's death??

But what I am unable to understand is that in this story,Balaram goes back on his word and decides to get his daughter married to Dury's son.Why would Balaram ever object his daughter's marriage to Abhimanyu at the first place??Even if he was very fond of Dury,still Subhadra was his sister.

What I never fully understood in abhimanyu story was  why he didn know how to exit the loop

I get it that subhadra slept while arjun was explaing the exit part , but surely he would have guided his son later when he grew up , maybe it was beacuse he didnt get any time due to vanvaas

This has never made any sense to me either.Even if Arjun wasn't there,Krishna was there.And Krishna knew about the Chakravyuh too.Krishna could have taught him or Balaram could coz he grew up at Dwarka

Beacuse Balram is portrayed in a very bad light there , its shown that as pandavas were in vanvaas , his daughter would not  get any sansaarik sukh i.e all the worldly pleasures
