We propose an extension of the generalized bivariate Marshall–Olkin model assuming dependence between the random variables involved. Probabilistic, aging properties, and survival copula representation of the extended model are obtained and illustrated by examples. Bayesian analysis is performed and possible applications are discussed. A dual version of extended Marshall–Olkin model is introduced and related stochastic order comparisons are presented.
