This does not seem to be 2 people. I believe it is just 2 marriage dates.

Select the one best suited and combine them. It is unusual to have 2 marriage dates, but not impossible.

Most likely these were estimated dates and without exact information, just pick one.

No. They are both the same marriage date and person.
Ironically, I have two marriage dates to the same woman.

And now two divorce dates, since the 5th of this month.

I wonder how much of a bother I'll be to some researcher down the road!

It is possible they belonged to different and wanted the record recorded at both Churches.

I can't explain the 2 divorces unless 1 church did not accept the previous divorce.Children might have required the 2nd for financial reasons.

One other thought. Is one divorce the same date as the marriage?

Married life can be strange. In Oklahoma, you are married if you hang your clothes in the same closet. IRS requires you to file as married.
