Re: the word "recte" #general

I believe the term "false" was used for situations
where there was only a religious marriage.
I am guessing that "recte" therefore means that there
was a civil marriage.

Dear Genners:
from the several responses I had re: meaning of the word "recte", it
Latin for, 'properly', 'correct', 'right way', 'right', 'actual',
'justly', and 'in accordance with the laws imposed by the
Empire, the parents (in my case) of my grandfather, were not married
in a
civil marriage, but probably married in a ritual marriage'.

Thank you,
