Do you remember when a recent study came out saying that the ideal age to get married is 32?
Here we were thinking that's very reasonable, and leaves plenty of time before stressing about the body clock, when all of a sudden, someone had to rock the boat and release a new study. And you're not going to like what it has to say.
Cognitive scientist Tom Griffiths and journalist Brian Christian released a book called Algorithms to Live By: The Computer Science of Human Decisions, and they think maths can guide the way you navigate your relationships.
They explore an algorithm called 'the 37% rule', which suggests that we make our best decisions in life after screening 37% of the options.
The authors have suggested that when you apply this to 'looking for love', and assume that the average ages people are looking for partner from is 18 - 40, then the '37% mark' would be 26. They suggest that after that, options start getting taken up and you're left with a smaller pool.
So 26 is their suggestion for the 'ideal age to get married'.
But obviously, you should make up your own mind, and this is different for every person.
