Or perhaps the marriage took place but the rabbi didn’t register it with the civil authorities.

The Winnipeg Free Press published an article on October 6, 1904, about the wedding of Ethel LENNIS  and Max Hoffer, in Selkirk, Manitoba.   Ethel Lennis died in 1909 on November 9th.   Her death is listed in the Manitoba archives, her grave is in Shaarey Zedek Cemetery; there is a brief obit in the Free Press.   She is buried under her maiden name, no mention of a marriage.
The article about the marriage is quite specific with names and the rabbi, but there is no listing in the Archives.   
Apparently there was no marriage.   Perhaps the information was given to the paper but then called off at the last moment.   Any thoughts about this?
