The Meforshim offer many reasons why Nadav and Avihu died a premature death. Daas Zekainim quotes a Midrash: R' Levi said that Nadav and Avihu never married. Many women were waiting for them, but they said, "our uncle (Moshe) is the king, our uncle (Nachshon) is a prince, our father (Aharon) is the kohein gadol, we are his assistants, what woman is worthy of us?" Therefore because of this huge haughtiness they were taken from the world prematurely!! I think everyone knows the lesson here - leave your haughtiness behind and be a wee bit more humble!!!
