confusion with census info

Surnames: o'shaughnessy/shaughnessy/devany
Hello. Can anyone please tell me why I have three pieces of info each showing different details.
1 being a marriage cert for Patrick O'shaughnessy to Mary Devany 1900.
Census 1901 shows their birth years 1871 & 1878 ages 30 & does the marriage cert.But they are now Shaughnessy.
The 1911 census show them as Shaughnessy, birth year 1875 and 1879 ages 36 and 32.that just cannot be correct. I know the marriage information is correct. What should I record in my tree. Thank You. MGT
