Requests for Child Marriage Dispensation in West Nusa Tenggara Province
Universitas Muhammadiyah Mataram, Indonesia

In Act Number 16 of 2019 concerning amendments to Act Number 1 of 1974 concerning Marriage, Article 7 paragraph (1) states that marriage is only permitted if the man and woman are 19 years old. However, in reality, there are a lot of early marriages, especially in West Nusa Tenggara (NTB) province. The West Nusa Tenggara Provincial Government recorded that 1,870 children applied for marriage dispensation throughout 2021-2022. This is a problematic problem that the NTB government must face. Marriage is not something that is prohibited, but there are terms and conditions that must be met by a couple to proceed to a marriage. Before the COVID-19 pandemic, the number of early marriages was steady, whereas during and after the pandemic, the number of early marriages was prone to increase. In communities, marriage dispensation occurs due to poverty, low education and traditions from the community itself. Therefore, in this case, in granting the decision, the judge must consider various important aspects before carrying out the marriage.
