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:
- Take the oldest age that you would like to be married.
- Subtract from it the youngest age that you would like to be married.
- Multiply the answer by 0.368.
- 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 :)
