English term or phrase: confidential marriage
context: US license and certificate of confidential marriage
Maybe "confidential" refers to that the couple to be married has been living together as husband and wife before their actual marriage?
Is there a corresponding term for "confidential marriage" in German?

geheim gehaltene Eheschliessung


Explanation:
nicht öffentlich bekannte Eheschliessung.
Ich bin nicht 100 pro sicher: Webster defines confidential as "known only to a few people, trusted with secret matters". Ich kann mir vorstellen, dass für prominente Persoenlichkeiten dies vielleicht von Bedeutung sein könnte.(No banns have been read). Does this help?


    Just a feeling.

geheime Ehe


Explanation:
it seems to me that this couple wants to remarry officially. They kept their first marriage secret.
Otherwise their relationship would have been de facto in both languages.
Hope it fits.
