Marital status refers to an individual's legal status in relation to marriage. It describes whether a person is currently married, unmarried, divorced, widowed, or in a legally recognized partnership.

The common categories of marital status include:

  1. Single: An individual who has never been married or has not entered into a legally recognized partnership.
  2. Married: A person who is legally united in marriage with another individual.
  3. Divorced: An individual who has legally ended their marriage through a divorce or dissolution process.
  4. Widowed: Someone whose spouse has passed away, resulting in the termination of the marriage.
  5. Separated: A status indicating that a married couple is living apart but has not legally dissolved their marriage.
  6. Civil Partnership or Domestic Partnership: A legally recognized relationship similar to marriage, available in some jurisdictions, often granting similar rights and responsibilities as married couples.


Marital status can have implications in various areas, including:

  • Legal rights and obligations: Marital status can affect matters such as property ownership, inheritance rights, tax filing status, and legal decision-making.
  • Social benefits: Marital status can impact eligibility for certain social benefits, such as healthcare coverage, pension plans, and survivor benefits.

It's important to note that marital status is a personal and private matter. While it may be relevant in specific legal or administrative contexts, respect for individuals' privacy and personal choices is crucial.
