Like many American films of the time, The Marriage Ring was subject to cuts by city and state film censorship boards. For example, the Chicago Board of Censors required cuts, in Reel 4, of the intertitle "Keep your kisses for your American lover; I have better here", three scenes of man embracing young native woman, all scenes of young woman dancing before men in tent, scene of man cutting telephone wires, and three scenes of man setting grass on fire with torch.[3]
