Q3. What are unrelated marriages?

We check that both the bride and groom are stated on the same certificate when checking marriage references. You can apply under one name but if you cross reference both parties the reference numbers must be identical. However, there is more than one marriage on each page of the original records, so cross referencing does not guarantee they married each other.
