Variable Group: Marital and relationship history

View Variable Group Comparability Notes

This group of variables is designed to capture information about the respondent's marriage(s) and/or current cohabitating relationship. Information is provided on the respondent's first two marriages as well as her current or most recent marriage. Variables include date of marriage, age at marriage, husband's age at marriage, husband's date of birth, whether the respondent lived with her husband prior to marriage, whether he had been married before, and how and when the marriage ended. For respondents who are currently cohabiting with an unmarried partner, much of the same information is available. Additional information is available for the respondent's current husband or cohabiting partner including race, education, whether he has children from a previous marriage, where those children live, and whether he financially supports them. This group also includes information on the respondent's cohabitation experience.
