When Should You Get Married? There's an App for That

Does it ever feel like everyone on your Facebook news feed announces their engagement or shares their gorgeous wedding photos around the same time? According to TIME's new app, there's a reason for that — your real-life social network often influences your feelings about marriage.

The tool predicts the age you'll tie the knot based on the median age of your Facebook friends who list their relationship status as married, engaged, in a domestic partnership, or in a civil union.

Obviously, it's not 100% accurate — it told me I should've gotten married two years later than I actually did (oops). But it's still fun to see how your age of marriage compares to that of your friends. Try it out, and let us know your results!
