|Title||The polygyny-divorce relationship: a case study of Nigeria|
Used data from Nigeria Fertility Survey of 1981/82 and proportional hazard models to estimate effect of polygyny on stability of first unions. Results indicated that simple dichotomy of polygynous and monogamous unions may be misleading. Two-wife unions were most stable whereas unions with three or more wives were associated with highest rates of marital disruption.
