Skeleton in my cupboard? #general

Dear Fellow Genners,

I recently obtained the marriage record of my paternal grandmother's parents.
After all the usual information, the record adds: "They also stated that before
entering into marriage they had conceived during their cohabitation a son,
Judka, born in the local town on September 1/13 1868. They recognize him as
their own by this marriage record, and on the basis of article 291 of the Civil
Code of the Kingdom of Poland, they secure for him the status and rights of a
legitimate child." I worked out that this child was conceived when my great
grandparents were about 16 years old! I am asking all our experts if this was
unusual - or not? The marriage took place in December 1869 in Kaluszyn.

Happy Purim to all,

Ingrid Rockberger
