This is the record of the marriage of my ggrandparents, Szlama Ajzengold and Ruchla Leja Rakower, on 26 Oct 1862.
I'd like a direct translation if possible, especially names and relationships.
The last line is very hard to read. I know that a name has been crossed out and the name Ajzengold substituted. If you can't read it, I can send you a lightened version of the bottom lines which may help with that last line.

11/26/2014 9:25 AM 329. It came to pass in Warsaw on the twenty-seventh day of October in the year of one thousand eight hundred and sixty-two at the hour of half past eight in the morning. Before me, a Civil Registrar for Non-Christian Confession of District Four, personally appeared orthodox Jew Jakob Majer Jeszuron, a lower rabbi, residing at number nine hundred and fifty-three, accompanied by

Szlama Ajgengold, a day labourer, twenty-six years of age, residing at number one thousand nine hundred and two, born in Warsaw to Jonasz and Frajda the daughter of Szmul, the Ajgengolds, a married couple, the day labourers, both of them residing at the above-mentioned number,

and Ruchla Laja Rakower, thirty years of age, {formerly} staying by her husband, born in Warsaw to Mosiek Blomberg and his spouse Sura nee Tywel, neither of them alive anymore,

as well as in the presence of witnesses, that is to say, orthodox Jews Szmul Mindelsohn, the responsible for the maintenance of synagogue, thirty-eight years of age, residing at number one thousand and fifty-eight, and Josek Chajm Dank, a glazier, thirty-six years of age, residing at number one thousand four hundred and seven, both of them residing here in Warsaw,

and declared before us that the religious matrimony had been entered into in front of him on the twenty-sixth day of October of the current year by Szlama Ajgengold, the bachelor, and the widow Ruchla Laj Rakower, following

proclamation of banns in this district, that is to say, on the thirteenth, the twentieth and the twenty-seventh day of September of the current year by means of posting them on the office door,

and, as per statement made by the spouses, who presented themselves in person, no making of premarital agreement between them.

Also, the spouses declared that, through the actual act of matrimony, in accordance with Article two hundred and ninety-one of the Civil Code of the Kingdom of Poland guaranteeing {children born out of wedlock} the rights and status equal to that of children lawfully born, they recognized their both daughters, that is to say, Chaia Sura who had been born here in Warsaw on the sixteenth day of June of last year, and Udla, who had been born in Warsaw on the thirteenth day of July of the current year, both of whom had been mutually begotten by them during their pre-conjugal relationship, as their own daughters, after which the actual act was read aloud to the appearers and the witnesses and subsequently signed by myself along with those who presented themselves that day. The bride declared that she did not know how to write.
