The Marriage Amendment Act 1906 also known by its full title "An Act to amend 'The Marriage Act 1895'" (Act no.6 Edw. VII No.19) stresses the legitimacy of marriages conducted prior to the Marriages Act 1895, or by Officiating Ministers whom were believed to be legitimate by the married parties even if they turned out to be unregistered or fraudulent. The amendment also made some changes to the Marriage Act 1895 including changing the title of Officers to Registrars of Marriages.
This legislation was repealed by Statute Law Revision Act 1934 (Act no. 25 Geo. V no.78) on 31 May 1938.
