Scientists discover perfect age to get married – and it’s younger than you think

Researchers have discovered the perfect age to get married using a mathematical algorithm.

According to smart workers Tom Grifiths and Brian Christian the best age to commit to your partner is 26.

In their book ,Algorithms to Live By: The Computer Science of Human Decisions , the authors argued their case.

According to the Independent, the algorithm claims that once you are 37% of the way though completing a task within a set timeframe you have reached the perfect time to decide.

And, if you’re looking for love between the ages of 18 and 40 then 26 is the perfect age as you are 37% through the 22 years.

It adds that if you’re older than 26 then you may argue with your lover too much and so it won’t work out!

If you want to get technical though, searching for that special someone is known as an “optimal stopping problem.” With over 1,000 possibilities, Christian and Griffiths explain that you should stop at 36.81% of the way through.

Just a heads up, if you’ve got more options, you can get way closer to 37%, because you'll have lots more opportunity to reach 37% bang on, so be sure to play the field!

However, University of Utah sociologistNicholas. H. Wolfingergoes against this theory.

He claims that the best age to get married in order to avoid divorce was 28 to 32.

Thats around a 48% completion time.

With over 1,000 possibilities, Christian and Griffiths explain that you should stop at 36.81% of the way through.

However, the rule doesn’t take into account the fact that our taste in partners can change between 18 and 40.

Either way, finding love is special.

And, if you’ve discovered a partner you’d love to be with then 26 is a great age to tie the knot!
