Dear Miguel,

This question is too general to be answered, you should tell us some details
about your data.

The sequence you present fits the pattern exhibited by recurrent events. For instance,
the agent is single, then married, then single (divorced) again.Then the agent is at the risk
of marrying again. More examples can be found quite easily.
