Does anyone know a reason why someone, living in Berlin circa 1905
would have left Berlin **just** to marry in London? Both husband and wife
were living in Berlin and continued to live in Berlin after the wedding.
I have this same puzzle: two different family members from Berlin who married in London in 1908 and 1911, then returned to Germany. Why? Both marriages involved Galician Jews who had settled in Berlin. Did Germany require citizenship obtain a marriage license? How prevalent was the practice of traveling to London to marry?
