Rhode Island - is this a CORRECTED Marriage entry?

Hi, hope everyone is having (or has just had) a great holiday.

I am keying a page of Marriage records from the Rhode Island Vital Records Project. In the highlighted extract attached, it would appear that the same Joseph Brownell has had his marriage entered twice because the first entry looks wrong - it says he married Abiel Tripp who, looking at the next entry (exactly the same date, spouse name Rebecca Tripp), would appear to be his father-in-law!

I am inclined to enter both of these records anyway as separate Marriage entries, even though one of them is probably wrong. Advice please...
