Robert McMath married Ellen Lafferty on 23rd September 1926 in Magherafelt R.D.
https://geni.nidirect.gov.uk/

The marriage record is available via GRONI online at the above link, and choosing the "full" option (5 credits £2.50) lets you see the digitised image of the original. You need to register on GRONI (free), then purchase a few credits to do full searches, view certificates etc.

Edited to add:
When you purchase and receive the marriage record, if you post the names of their fathers, then we can do a bit more digging!  :)

I think that is Robert R McMath. in 1901 census. Can't make out his 2nd name on the birth.

http://www.census.nationalarchives.ie/pages/1901/Londonderry/Kilrea/Coleraine_Street/1521070/

And he is presbyterian

Edited

Yes. I think the 2nd Robert John in 1886 is him.
