Marriage, religious and civil #unitedkingdom
I have the following information on a religious marriage in Paris France
On 26-Dec-1877 (20 Tevet 5638) at Nazareth Synagogue
Joseph ARBIB, born in Gibraltar and residing in London
? FIELDER, born in London and residing in London.
Now the questions
In France one needs a civil marriage to be “married”, what is the law
No French civil record yet found. Is there a British civil record to be found?
Thanks for any help.

is the law in England?
In England, in 1877, a religious marriage had (and still has) the same
standing as a civil one,. However, it needs to be registered officially
at the General Register Office by attestation >from the presiding cleric.
I've seen copies of affidavits to this effect.
