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?
Explanation: nicht öffentlich bekannte Eheschliessung.
