Stage 6: A B C c d D a b The procedure ends and the proposed matching system is: ⎛ ⎜ ⎜ ⎝ A B C D c d a b ⎞ ⎟ ⎟. ⎠ Exercise: Show that the above matching system is stable.

We shall examine the procedure when the men propose. The proof for the case where the women propose is obtained by reversing the gender roles. The theorem is proved if it is seen that every man rejected by a woman is rejected only by a woman who is impossible for him; that is, every man is rejected only by women with whom he cannot be paired off in any case in a stable matching system. If that is true, then every man, after proposing according to his preferences, will eventually be paired off with the woman he prefers most among the women possible for him, that is, with the woman he prefers most among all the stable systems.

In so doing, we shall be in a position to answer also the second question. The Gale–Shapley algorithm for finding a stable matching system First Stage: Every man turns to the woman who is first on his list and proposes to her. Every woman who receives more than one proposal selects her favorite from among those who propose to her and tells the others that she will never marry them. Every man who is not rejected is put on a “waiting list” of the woman to whom he proposed. Second Stage: Every man who was rejected turns to the woman who is second on his list and proposes to her.
