Why is Earth only the only major terrestrial world with a stratosphere?

Thanks for the opportunity to answer your question!

Ozone (O3) molecules are molecules that fare well at absorbing ultraviolet photons. Because earth is the only terrestrial planet with oxygen, other planets cannot have ozone molecules or an ozone layer, and thus cannot have a stratosphere.
