Interviewer instructions
This module is to be administered to all women aged 15-49 years (including women age 15 and age 49).

In the questionnaire and this manual, 'marriage' always refers formal unions.

The options here are currently married,or not in union. Circle the code corresponding to the respondent's status at the time of the interview. If the woman is currently neither married or in a union, skip to MA3.
