Source: Minneapolis Journal (MN) Saturday, 6 Jan. 1900; transcribed by FoFG mz

Albert Lea, Minn., Jan. 6. - Yesterday, Emanuel Breintenstein and Annie K. Lorentzen, accompanied by the latter's elder brother, arrived at the office of the clerk of the district court and asked for a marriage license. The prospective groom was 22 years of age, but his intended bride was but 17, and as her father and mother were both dead and she had no guardian, the clerk of the court was at his wits’ ends to know what to do, as there was no one to give consent to the marriage of the young lady. The probate court was appealed to and Judge Blackmer soon solved the problem by naming the young lady's brother as her guardian, the necessary bond was given, the guardian freely gave his consent, the license was issued and the probate judge at once pronounced the words that made the young couple husband and wife. The guardian was then released as the young lady did not require a guardian when she had a husband. The parties returned to their home in Alden in the best possible humor.
