Check MA6: Both month and year of marriage/union known? Go to Next Module Either month or year of marriage/union not known? Continue with MA8
How old were you when you started living with your first husband/partner?
If both the month and year are known, go to the next module. If either the month or the year is not known, continue to MA8. As with other age questions, if she does not know, probe. For instance, ask how old she was when her first child was born and then ask how long before or after giving birth she began living with her first husband or partner. Do not leave this question blank.
