The challenge of the discriminating bride: how science helps to choose the best life partner

I'm 25, I'm alone, but one day I'm going to get married. But when exactly, I have no idea.

However, according to the mathematical theory, it is time for me to get ready.
Journalist Brian Christian and cognitive scientist Tom Griffiths, co-authors of the book Algorithms to Live: The Computer Science of Human Decisions, are confident that the so-called"37% rule", or the optimal stop rule,will help make the right decision when it's time to have a wedding, and with whom.

This rule suggests that when we need to make a decision in a short period of time, it is best to do so, having considered 37% of our options.This is a fairly large amount of information, so that the decision will be quite balanced, but you will not spend too much time.

Thus, if you are looking for true love in the interval between 18 and 40 years, applying the rule of 37% to these 22 years between we will get an age of 26 years - when it is better to settle down and start a family.

If you settle before this age, you will think that you are still missing something or someone. And if you wait longer, then all the good ones will be taken apart.

But this does not mean that you will be alone forever, if you do not find anyone by the age of 26. The rule of 37% only assumes that by this age you are already mature enough to make decisions that are not affected by anything extra, and that you will not change it in the coming decades.

In the world of science, this problem of stopping choice is still known as“Tasks for legible bride”,which was first formulated by mathematician Martin Gardner back in 1960.It helps to understand and WHOM is better to choose.

The bottom line is:

  1. The bride is looking for a groom (there is only one vacant place).
  2. There are a known number of applicants -.
  3. The bride communicates with the applicants in a random order, with each no more than once.
  4. Every current challenger knows whether he is better or worse than any previous one.
  5. As a result of communication with the current applicant, the bride must either refuse him or accept his offer. If the offer is accepted, the process stops.
  6. The goal is to choose the best challenger.

A common solution was found by Soviet professor Sabir Huseyn-Zade in 1966.
