Re: Mark Rubovits and Mark Fabian #hungary


although most of the marriage/birth records that i have looked at have been of people in their 20s, at least, i did come across a notarial record in the budapest archives, of a marriage contract where the father was the legal representative for his underage daughter. (the record hasn't been digitized, so i can only see the catalogue entry online.)

what was the legal age of majority around 1890? i know that, anecdotally, some people married very young by our standards, but how many really young marriages have y'all seen in the records? and was it always a case of a young bride, or were some of the grooms also very young?

ps. i would love to help with looking up Mark Rubovits' birth, but the accented letters in the town name make it indecipherable.
