What is the best age to get married? It might be younger than you'd expect!
According to Tom Griffiths and Brian Christian in their book, Algorithms to Live By: The Computer Science of Human Decisions, the best age to get married is 26 year old.
Basically this theory says that when completing a task, the perfect point to make a decision in it is when you're 37% done with it.
So when it comes to finding your person, if the average person is looking between 18-40 years old, then 26 is the ideal age to marry because you're 37% of the way through the 18-40 age range.
Is this a perfect theory? Absolutely not. If I married the person I was dating at 26, I'd be miserable and probably divorced by now.
According to University of Utah sociologist Nicholas H. Wolfinger, that the best age to get married in order to avoid divorce was 28-32. (according this theory, that would be more of a 45% range). See Nicholas' study HERE
