I am going to make an educated guess that this photo was taken after the couple married, but before they had children.  Taking a photo was a big deal at that time, and I think they would have included the children in the photo, if they had children.

I do not know how common wedding rings were in Easter Europe at that time.  Also, I cannot see the pendant clearly in your photo, so cannot comment on that.

There are people that specialize in dating old clothing.  You may want to start a new thread on the discussion list with an appropriate subject line, i.e. Dating of 19th century clothing.  That way people with knowledge of the subject will read your post.

best regards,
