Literal question

If man is 'boyfriend' or 'fiancée', ask:
Was your boyfriend/fiancée living with you when you last had sex?
If 'yes', circle 1. If 'no', circle 2.
Interviewer instructions
This question asks about the relationship she had with this other man. It should refer to the relationship she had with the man at the time of intercourse. Replace 'IS' in the question to 'WAS', if necessary.

The questions should be asked, probed and recorded the same way as SB4. Note that if '1' is circled (the man was a spouse or cohabiting partner at the time of intercourse), you should skip to SB10.
