The stable marriage problem has been introduced in order to describe a complex system where individuals attempt to optimise their own satisfaction, subject to mutually conflicting constraints. Due to the potential large applicability of such model to describe all the situation where different objects has to be matched pairwise, the statistical properties of this model have been extensively studied. In this paper, we present a generalisation of this model, introduced in order to take into account the presence of correlations in the lists and the effects of distance when the players are supposed to be represented by a position in space.
