EARLY MARRIAGE: REGULATION, IMPLEMENTATION AND RESEARCH FINDINGS
Marriage is an inner and outer bond between a man and a woman as husband and wife with the aim of forming a happy and eternal family. But sometimes that happiness and eternity becomes a dream when the marriage is carried out by an underage couple. The majority of couples who marry at an early age are not ready to bear the burdens of life and responsibilities as parents, so that there is the potential for disharmony to arise or end in divorce. Child marriage is also a burden for young couples who do not have sufficient income so that the nutritional needs of their children are not met optimally. Law Number 16 of 2019 was born as an effort to renew the age of marriage in order to support the realization of a harmonious, happy and eternal family. From this family, it is hoped that future generations of superior, creative, intelligent and noble character will be born. However, in reality there are still many cases of early marriage in various parts of Indonesia. There are hundreds of applications for marriage dispensation in religious courts every year.

The results of the study show that there have been many policies carried out by stakeholders at the village/kelurahan, district, provincial and national levels in preventing early marriage which requires full community participation.
