In 1822, Abraham Decker, age 24, married Rebecka Aron from Mettenheim, age 27 in Gauersheim, in the the Pfalz region of Germany. Their ages were given in the marriage announcements posted in the respective towns. Here is a rough translation of one of the announcements:
Publication of the wedding promises between Abraham decker and Rebecca Aron. ... the wedding promises between Abraham Decker, 24 years and about 7 months old, born and living in Gauersheim, merchant, ... and ... the young lady Rebecka Aron, 27 year and two months and two days old, born and living in Mettenheim in the grand Duchy of Hesse ...
I am wondering about the significance (if any) of the rather advanced (for the time) age of the bride. I remember hearing somewhere that Jews had to possess a certain amount of wealth to marry (officially) and am wondering if that might have been a contributing factor. The bride's father died in 1810 (when she would have been 17 or so), and it's conceivable that it took a while to save up for the marriage.
In short: Where can I find some evidence regarding the impact of net worth (or other measures of financial well-being) on Jews' rights to marry in the Pfalz region of Bavaria in the 1820s?
