Mumcu, Ayse and Saglam, Ismail (2006): Marriage and Divorce in a Model of Matching.
Download (287kB) | Preview
We study the problem of marriage formation and marital distribution in a two-period model of matching, extending the matching with bargaining framework of Crawford and Rochford (1986). We run simulations to find the effects of alimony rate, legal cost of divorce, initial endowments, couple and single productivity parameters on the payoffs and marital status in the society.
