Select Incentives:

Each red square represents a woman and each blue square represents a man.
The size of the square represents income; larger squares make more money than smaller squares.
Lines connecting two squares represent marriages.

The squares move randomly. When a red and blue square collide, they will get married if doing so will benefit both parties under the incentive structure selected. A red and blue square will divorce if doing so will benefit either party.

The graph along the top shows how many spouses each square has. The bars in the graph represent squares, arranged according to size (income).

The list under the graphic dynamically lists marriages and divorces as they occur. This list will be different each time you run the model because the order in which squares collide changes, even though every square will eventually collide with every other square.
