According to the indexed baptisms, there was an Andrew _Takács_ and Catherine Malik couple having children in Sarud in 1814-1837; perhaps this caused an error in the marriage register? It looks like "Catharina" was written in on top of a different name, starting with M -- I think Michael, the father's name. That is, the clerk/pastor wrote the father of the bride in place of the bride, noticed his mistake, and "corrected" it to the feminine name he associated with Malik, which was Catherine in all those baptisms he'd been recording over the past decades.

Given that there are no baptisms for children of a Catherine Malik and Andrew Török after this marriage, but there are a gazillion for _Anna_ Malik and Andrew Török, I think this is the correct marriage, with an incorrectly-recorded name.
