Consequently, game theory is also called theory of social situations in some fields.
A matching is not stable if: In other words, a matching is stable when there does not exist any match (A, B) by which both A and B would be individually better off than they are with the element to which they are currently matched.

Each server prefers to serve users that it can with a lower cost, resulting in a (partial) preferential ordering of users for each server.
Content delivery networks that distribute much of the world's content and services solve this large and complex stable marriage problem between users and servers every tens of seconds to enable billions of users to be matched up with their respective servers that can provide the requested web pages, videos, or other services.
When there are no such pairs of people, the set of marriages is deemed stable.
Algorithms for finding solutions to the stable marriage problem have applications in a variety of real-world situations, perhaps the best known of these being in the assignment of graduating medical students to their first hospital appointments.
