      I might be able to help. Can you attach your nlogo file, either as an edit to your initial comment or as a reply to this one?

        Dear Drew, 

        thank you for your response. I am very new to NetLogo but really want to make this code run as it would be very helpful for my research. I have commented the lines which I am unsure about..

            Dear Steve,

            thank you for your response. I am unable to get my email through to you, probably due to external email restrictions. I copy my message below:

            thank you very much for reaching out. I am new to NetLogo and wish to study a partnership model with interacting agents, and it would be very helpful to my research to have this model as a first working example.

            I understand that the original code is posted with errors for exercise to the user, but unfortunately I haven't been able to work out all the bugs. In particular, I believe that the initial social network size is sometimes equal to zero, thus leading to an error of dividing by zero when calculating the married fraction.

            Should I add an ifelse statement to the social-network count, so that if it is zero, the marriage fraction is also equal to zero?

            If you could offer me some help in how to fix a solution, I would be ever so grateful.

            TIA and kind regards,

            Danielle G.
