Civil Marriage after Religious One #general

Robert Dodell <RADodell@...>

Grandparents, who were religious, had a religious marriage in the shetl before
1913. 8 months after first child was born, they got (able to get?) a civil
marriage. Why would they care? 1914. Could it have something to do with WWI and
trying to avoid service. They did not emmigrate to the States till 1920, so I
doubt reason was that. Suggestions anyone?
