We knew a couple who divorced and then remarried. Also, some people have a 
quick private wedding then a larger wedding including friends later 
If the first case, just show a date for the ending of the first marriage,  if 
you know it,  them add the second marriage as alt other second marriage. 
If the second case,  use the official date in the record and add a note in the 
Marriage notes about the second marriage. 
However with the gap in time and it being in the records twice,  I would say 
most likely they had divorced or had the marriage annulled and later married

Subject: [LegacyUG] Couple married twice 

James Spencer (a corporal in the Grenadier Guards) married Ellen Kemp on 
24 Dec 1868 in St. Margaret's Church, Westminster. The couple then 
married again on 27 Feb 1871 in the Royal Chapel in the Tower of London. 
I am now looking into possible reasons for them going through two 
marriage ceremonies, but my immediate problem is: how do I record the 
two marriages in Legacy?

I would be grateful for any suggestions.
