Marital Status

This refers to the legal marital status of a individual.

In the context of job hunting it should not matter whether a candidate is married or single. However when applying for certain jobs the application form may ask you to verify or declare what your marital status is.

In essence you can only give one of two answers here, either you are married or your unmarried, therefore you are single. You should not have to state if you are divorced, widowed or seperated etc, that is not the business of any employer or recruiter.

Various legal classifications:-

Single
Married
Re-married
Seperated
Divorced
widowed
