Hello, I am a returning FH user and I'm looking forward to getting back to family research.

Hello, while researching my FH I found a marriage which I expected to find which took place in 1834, then by pure chance I found the same marriage in 1832, it was the same people in the same church manse. There was a child from the 1832 marriage and it appears that the lady was 4 months pregnant at the time of the wedding. I am unable to find the child on the 1841 census anywhere in Scotland and no death record so I'm very puzzled as to why another marriage took place, ( if that was allowed at the time) ? . Is this a coincidence, if so its a very remote one .
