  1. *p < 0.1; **p < 0.05; ***p < 0.01. Cluster (household) robust standard errors for the marginal effects in parentheses. A positive marginal effect signifies an increased probability of dissolution. The marginal effects are "grand margins". The group marginal effects are shown and tested for equality on the next table. "Non-changers" (column 3) refers to households in which neither spouse has changed occupations since marriage.
