The Best Age To Get Married According To Mathematics

The age to get married is purely a personal choice, and the success of a marital relationship solely depends on the understanding and intimacy between the partners. But now, a new theory developed by mathematical experts has successfully found the ideal age to tie the knot with your soulmate.

A mathematical theory called the 37% Rule dictates that 26 is the ideal age at which to choose a long-term partner, reports The Independent.

The theory, developed by cognitive scientist Tom Griffiths and journalist Brian Christian, authors of the book Algorithms to Live By: The Computer Science of Human Decisions, suggests that 26 is the ideal time to settle down.

What will happen if you marry before after 26 years? 

Nicholas H. Wolfinger, a sociologist at the University of Utah, found that marriage between the ages of 28 to 32 results in a decreased chance of divorce. Though the age isn’t exactly 26, couples often date for a few years before committing. It would appear that our dating instincts are the most reliable at that magic age of 26.
