It was very common for Jewish couples to have only a religious marriage. If they needed to have a civil ceremony for some practical reason, they might do it years or decades later. Of course, one can only speculate what happened here.

BTW, none of the volumes of Divrei Chaim mention the author having a middle name "Yoel." That is likely an error.
