Abstract:

This article examines mean-field games for marriage.  The  results support the argument that optimizing the long-term well-being  through effort and  social  feeling state distribution (mean-field)  will help to  stabilize marriage.  However ,  if the cost of effort is very high, the couple fluctuates in a bad feeling state or the marriage  breaks down.  We then examine the influence of  society on a couple using mean field sentimental games.  We show  that, in mean-field equilibrium,  the optimal effort is always higher than the one-shot optimal effort.  We illustrate numerically  the influence of the couple’s network on their feeling states and their well-being.
