A. Basuniansyah, St. Laksanto Utomo, Phillips A. Kanna


Abstract: The Kaharingan belief contains rules of life whose values and contents are not just customs, but also teachings to behave. It is taught orally by parents to their children from generation to generation. The teachings and habits carried out from generation to generation are known as hadat (adat). It is used juridical empirical research, In legal research terms, it is called socio-legal research. Data are collected by visiting the field to obtain information about the marriage of the Dayak indigenous people and the practice of the marriage of the Bakumpai community in Central Kalimantan. The results showed that marriage by custom and religion is sacred and must be passed by the couple andtheir family. Meanwhile, the administration of marriage as stipulated in the Marriage Law is only considered as a complement, where some of the indigenous Dayak Bakumpai people consider it not too important to be implemented. The marriage law is still unable to accommodate traditional marriages in Indonesia. The main reformation of the marriage law is the legal substance, especially the material in the UUP Marriage Law, which needs to be changed immediately.
