 According to "WebMD", Marriage is one of the most important moments of human life. Imagining the excitement or joy that will come from walking down the aisle also makes it the greatest moment.

Many people think that age doesn’t matter in a relationship, but scientists prove them wrong. Research shows that there is a correlation between marriage and age.

When should we get married?

Tom Griffiths and author Brian Christian" in their book, Algorithms to Live By The Computer Science of Human Decisions, told "" that the perfect age to get married is 26. The experts write to "Healthline" that you peak when you are 37 percent of the way through completing something within a set timeframe.

The authors estimate that if the average person is looking for their perfect match between the ages of 18 and 40, then 26 is the ideal age because you are 37 percent of the way through the 22-year timeframe.

According to this theory, if you are any younger or older than 26, you are going to argue too much and it just won’t work out.

If you want to get technical though, searching for that special someone is known as an “optimal stopping problem.” With over 1,000 possibilities, Christian and Griffiths explain that you should stop at 36.81 percent of the way through.

Just a heads up, if you have got more options, you can get way closer to 37 percent, because you will have lots more opportunities to reach 37 percent bang on, so be sure to play the field!

University of Utah sociologist Nicholas. H. Wolfinger goes against this theory though, as he discovered in July 2015 that the best age to get married to avoid divorce was 28-32, which is more like 45 percent.

Of course, the rule of 37 percent isn’t perfect, because it does not account for the fact that our tastes may change between the ages of 18-40, and we may be looking for something different.

According to April Davis, the founder of LUMA Luxury Matchmaking told Healthline .com, and Menshealth: “There isn't necessarily the best age to get married, but there is the best time to get married. The best time to get married is when you feel comfortable and reliable with your job and personal life
