''Matching Markets: the Particular Case of Couples''
( 2004, Vol. 3 No.45 )
We consider one-to-one markets where workers can apply to a centralized procedure either alone or as a couple, in order to reach a core- stable matching of firms and workers. We impose stringent restrictions on the preferences of couples capturing the fact that spouses want to live in the same region, which are shown to be incompatible with the guarantee of the existence of a stable matching.
