Many American citizens who have come to Poland to marry now find themselves in an awkward situation because they are unable to return to the United States with their newly married wives and husbands respectively. This is due to the refusal of the Polish government to issue marriage certificates to Americans newly wed in Poland for fear that they have left a family behind in America or that they have gone through a marriage ceremony in order to be able to smuggle Poles into America outside of the quota laws. A warning has been issued that all Americans coming to Poland to get married should bring a certificate showing that they are unmarried.
