2. Select Analyze > Fit Y by X.

3. Select marital status and click Y, Response.

4. Select sex and click X, Factor.

5. Click OK.

6. Click the red triangle next to Contingency Analysis of marital status By sex and select Measures of Association.

Since the variables that you want to examine (sex and marital status) are nominal, use the Lambda and Uncertainty measures. All of them are small, so it seems that there is a weak association between sex and marital status.
