This study aims to determine the determinant factors related to marriage age in married women aged 15-24 years in Indonesia in 2017. This research is a descriptive analytic type with cross-sectional design. The sample of this study were married women aged 15-24 years in Indonesia in 2017. The analysis used in this study was univariable and multivariable analysis using multiple logistic regression. The results of this study indicate that out of 1, 321 married women aged 15-24 years, 64.4 % had marriages under the age of 20. Education is the most dominant factor, while the most influential factors are employment status, media access, the role of decision making, education of the husband, area of residence, economic status, and education of the head of the household. Women who remain in school with a maturity program through marriage through peers play an important role in delaying the age of marriage, in addition to media exposure, especially social media, is the most effective media for providing information about the delay in the age of marriage in women.
