JewishGen Discussion Group #JewishGen postponed registration of marriages, Galicia, 1902 #general

Sharlene Kranz <skranz_99@...>

I have found two families who registered their marriages civilly
many years after the actual marriage. Two couples in Dzikow,
Galicia registered their marriages in 1902, both already having
grown children. What reasons were there for Jewish couples to
delay registering a marriage? And was there anything special
about 1902?
