Suppose you are told you must marry, and that you must choose your spouse out of 100 applicants.
You may interview each applicant once. After each interview you must decide whether to marry that person.
If you decline, you lose the opportunity forever. If you work your way through 99 applicants without choosing one, you must marry the 100th. You may think you have 1 in 100 chance of marrying your ideal partner, but the truth is that you can do a lot better than that.
