Table 5:
Logistic model odds ratios (and 95 per cent CI) of divorce of first marriages of spouses on bride's fertility status and other covariates (included were marriages which did not end in divorces in the first year)
 
 
  Covariate Odds ratio (95% CI)
 
Birth in previous 6 monthsa:  
  (yes=1; no=0) 0.33 ** (0.23 - 0.49)
Marriage duration dummies (omitted category: 12-23 months):  
  24-35 months 1.00   (0.71 - 1.64)
  36-59 months 0.45 ** (0.29 - 0.72)
Kinship:  
  (yes=1; no=0) 0.62   (0.38 - 1.02)
 
Groom's age (range 18-65 years) 0.95   (0.9 - 1.01)
Groom's education:  
  (some=1; none=0) 0.81   (0.46 - 1.42)
Groom's household asset:  
  (some=1; none=0) 0.59 * (0.39 - 0.9)
  (unknown=1; none=0) 0.74   (0.4 - 1.39)
 
Model 2, 8 df 85.3  
 

Note: The odds ratio's of the reference groups are equal to 1.00 and consist of 'no' or 'none' (value=0) for all variables except for marriage duration, groom's age.
a births before 12 months after marriage are assumed to occur at the 12th month.
* P<0.05
** P<0.01.
