Math Says You Should be Married at this Age


Professor Anthony Dooley of the University of New South Wales devised a formula to calculate 'the ideal marrying age'. I personally think it's very convincing.

The magic formula:
  1. Take the oldest age that you would like to be married.
  2. Subtract from it the youngest age that you would like to be married.
  3. Multiply the answer by 0.368.
  4. Voila! Your ideal marrying age, according to Professor Dooley.
The formula takes into account "maximum rewards for minimal costs" - which I assume tries to calculate the 'readiness' of an individual to tie the knot. Even if you're a skeptic, it's still pretty fun.

I got 28.2 years of age, pretty near my ideal :)
