I'm sure someone else will post specifically about Volhynian records, 
but I thought I'd give a more general answer because others may wonder 
about this as well. I have indexed thousands of Lublin parish marriage 
records and I've also seen many from other Polish parishes. Records 
compiled into a table will provide the names of the parents, but will 
rarely indicate whether they are living. Full Napoleonic paragraph 
records will usually indicate where the parents live or if one or both 
are deceased. If the widowed mother has re-married, sometimes her new 
surname will be given if she lives in the area. If the bride and/or 
groom is widowed, the name of the deceased spouse and date of death is 
provided. This is not always indicated on a table, though the status, 
single or widowed, is always given. Marriage records usually provide the 
birth village, or at least the name of the parish, for the bride and 
groom, and, of course, the age.

Of course, some marriage information is only available on index tables 
which include only the names and ages of the bride and groom, their 
villages, and perhaps the names of two witnesses. Looking at the record, 
not just at extracted indexes, usually does provide more information.
