Hi everyone, I am trying to analyze the couple's data of Uganda 2016 dataset and have merged MR and IR by mv001=v001, mv002=v002, mv003=v034(woman's partner). However, I found out that some couples did not agree on whether they were married or living together. I even found some men reporting being single/divorced while women reported being married/living together with them. I wonder if anyone has met this issue, and what could be the cause?

Also, although I intend to include all couples that reported either being married or living together in my analysis, I wonder if I should do something regarding the disagreement?

Thank you all in advance!
