 Table 4: Logistic model odds ratios (and 95 per cent confidence intervals) of divorce on covariates
 Covariate Odds ratio (95% CI) Marriage duration dummies (omitted category: 0-11 months): 12-23 months 0.73 * (0.56 - 0.95) 24-35 months 0.6 ** (0.44 - 0.81) 36-59 months 0.21 ** (0.16 - 0.29) Bride's prior marital status: widowed/divorced (yes =1; no =0) 1.6 * (1.22 - 2.08) Groom's prior marital status: polygynous (yes=1; no=0) 2.47 ** (1.82 - 3.37) widowed/divorced (yes=1; no=0) 1.07 (0.8 - 1.45) Kinship: (yes=1; no=0) 0.76 * (0.59 - 0.97) Groom's age (range 18-65 years) 0.98 ** (0.97 - 0.99) Groom's education: (some=1; none=0) 0.63 * (0.42 - 0.93) Groom's household assets: (some=1; none=0) 0.54 * (0.4 - 0.74) (unknown=1; none=0) 1.02 (0.76 - 1.36) Interactions: marriage duration of 24-35 months x groom's divorce status 0.41 * (0.19 - 0.86) marriage duration of 12-23 months x groom's education 1.84 * (1.0 - 3.39) marriage duration of 12-23 months x household asset 1.71 * (1.03 - 2.84) Comparison of models: Model with interactions __ likelihood statistics (df) 3723.0 (14260) Model without interactions ___ likelihood statistics (df) 3737.3 (14263) Difference 2 14.3 (3)

 Note: The odds ratio's of the reference categories are equal to 1.00 and consist of 'no' or 'none' (value=0) except for marriage duration and groom's age. In the case of groom's and bride's prior marital status the reference category is never married (=0). * P<0.05 ** P<0.01.
