<Often is was when a man left to marry a woman in the new
destination, but
sometimes a family would relocate to places where they felt
there would be
better economic opportunities or for family considerations.>

In my day the woman moved to where the man had a job. I had
always thought it
strange that my grandfather moved to the town where his
bride-to-be lived.
Maybe it made more sense in those days to have the woman live
near family.
Is this a common occurrence?
I think even today you'll see examples of the man moving to where
the woman lives. Some girls still choose to be near their
parents and some parents are willing to arrange for a job or
assist in other ways to ensure that this happens.
