Civil status  (CIVIL status)

The population may be divided into different groups by civil status1, conjugal status1, marital status1 or marital condition1. Single2 persons, bachelors3 and spinsters4 are those who have never been married; they are also sometimes called the never-married2 class. The class of married persons5, married men6 and married women7, consists of those who have been married and whose marriages have not been dissolved (510-1). All persons except the single are ever-married persons8.
