Hi Hanna,

I do not know how much of the information in the various naturalization forms were either confirmed by the naturalizing agencies or required the applicants to show proof.  Max could have claimed and sworn to the marriage without needing to prove it.  We know the censuses are self-reporting and unverified so the 1940 does not prove anything.  Something may have come up that prompted them to make it official in 1950.
