Choosing Ideal Spouse with Applying Multi Criteria Decision Making Techniques

Abstract -- Complexity of social issues and various problems of human life, made the scientists of recent centuries, to describe, analyze and optimize the behavior of social and community problem solving and using quantities models and mathematical methods thereby decrees the complexity of the issues and make the appropriate resolutions.

In this study, we have benefited from a relatively new science in decision making with the name of MCDM and also providing an helping decision making decision model, by combination of 2 techniques of AHP and PROMETHEE and by representing an interdisciplinary and conducted field study, we try to use practical proven techniques in optimizing of choosing spouse decision making. Finally, by implementation and evaluation of proposed approach, determined its accuracy and validity by approved experts and specialists.

Keywords -- AHP, Choosing spouse, Decision making, MCDM, PROMETHEE]
