Father's Name on Marriage Certificate

Posted: 13 Nov 2012 1:56PM GMT
Classification: Marriage
On two marriage certificates relating to one of my ancestors (1865 and 1875), the father's name and occupation is given,although I am very sure that he had already died. Can anyone tell me whether it was a common occurrence not to state that the father was deceased, and if there a reason for this.
