Hi Sergiy,
I know that multigeneration household would be very difficult but I
just would like to constitute one household but differentiate wives
and husbands.
Yes, I do have variables such as  "relationship to the  head of
household", marital status, sex but how to construct the distinction,
I don't know.
Thanks,
Nirina
