Will @RachelWeinberg marry me?

Resolves YES if @RachelWeinberg and I get legally married; NO if we're not on track by market close, or major events make this very unlikely (eg one of us marries someone else).

We've been dating for just over 3 months. See also:

@JoshuaAnderson I bought no, FYI. Manifold said I bought yes because I bought the wrong direction first. Wishing you guys success!

@ForrestTaylor LOL but why does austin have a 0.7% higher chance than Rachel

I have created a duplicate of this market which may have arbitrage opportunities.

Techies who get on very often do marry the first person they date seriously. Buying tentatively at 45.

If Austin is similar to me I think he's overconfident about his first relationship

It is taking every ethical bone in my body to resist the urge to duplicate this market

@ForrestTaylor It's fine if you are extremely confident your partner is and will be happy with it, but I think your prior should be low on that.

ForrestTaylor avatar

@NathanpmYoung No, my urge is to duplicate it EXACTLY- that is, I also want to find out the probability that Rachel Weinberg, whoever that is, will marry me.
Why? It would be very funny.

jack avatar

I'm not sure I see why it would be unethical in this context. As long as they don't object to it, of course.

@RachelWeinberg what do you think of this? :)

RachelWeinberg avatar

@jack haha fine by me :)

(Also while this is fun, let's all be prepared to be very gracious if this market resolves no and not talk about it too much - the last thing you need during a breakup is 20 nerds disputing resolution criteria)

@NathanpmYoung They were on a break!

Manifold in the wild: A Tweet by Nathan is in SF (say hi 👋)

awww, she's betting yes (I know some of you are sometimes concerned about this stuff, but quite clearly both parties in this market are on board with it)
