The phenomenon of early marriage in Indonesia is still a case of marriage which has a negative impact on Indonesia. According to the marriage law, the age limit for marriage is at least 19 years for both men and women, the marriage law has changed the age limit for marriage, which was originally 19 for men and 16 for women, this was done to suppress and prevent the occurrence of child marriages. Lack of quality human resources, loss of children's rights, occurrence of domestic violence are 3 of the many negative impacts of early marriage. In 2018 as many as 11.21% of women who had not yet reached the age of 19 had married, this made Indonesia the second most unfortunate country in ASEAN to have early marriages. The lack of outreach to children about the dangers of sex outside of marriage, economic difficulties, and a culture that is still thick with arranged marriages are 3 of the many factors that lead to early marriage.
