Gesher Galicia SIG #Galicia Permission for marriage #galicia

Errol Schneegurt
 

I sent a question in a few weeks back as to why a person, in this case my
great-grandfather who worked for the Postal Service in Lviv, required
permission >from the Post Office to get married. I did not get a firm answer
to this question so I did a web search to try and find out why this
permission was needed.

I found that after the partition of Poland a ruling was passed in lands held
by Austria that a Rabbi could not wed those that did not have permanent
earnings. I would therefore assume that this would hold true in civil
marriages as well since the recorded marriage was several years after the
religious marriage.
