According to scientist Tom Griffiths and author Brian Christian in their book, Algorithms to Live By: The Computer Science of Human Decisions, the perfect age to get married is 26. The experts write that you peak when you are 37 percent of the way through completing something within a set timeframe.
The authors estimate that if the average person is looking for their perfect match between the ages of 18 and 40, then 26 is the ideal age, because you are 37 percent of the way through the 22-year timeframe.
According to this theory, if you are any younger or older than 26, you are going to argue too much and it just won’t work out – sorry folks!
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 percent of the way through.
April Davis, the founder of LUMA Luxury Matchmaking, told wedding magazine, Brides: “There isn’t necessarily a best age to get married, but there definitely is a best time to get married.
“The best time to get married is when you feel comfortable and confident in your job and personal life.
“If you were to give yourself an exact age, you might find that you settle for whomever you are with at that age.”
