Responding to my own question which may be of interest to others. I watched a recent zoom meeting on LItvaksig and one of the participants mentioned that there were what he called fictitious marriages in Lithuania. He had come across one recently when looking into the records on behalf of a family he knew well. When he mentioned the finding to the family they were aware of the fictitious marriage. He pointed out that our ancestors did what was necessary to enable them to for example leave the country, mov e around and so on. This seems to lend some credence to my notion that the marriage in my grandfathers name may have been a fictitious one.
