This piece of writing describes the significance of age limitation for couples (brides and grooms) before marriage as stated in the Marital Laws (UU Perkawinan) No. 1, 1974. It is a matter of fact that, in our country, many couples get married in young ages before being matured, both physically and mentally. It does not only trigger several problems for them, such as women reproduction and economic dilemma but also problems for the government dealing with population explosion. In addition, too early marriage may increase number of crimes and abortion. Thus, the limitation of age for couples is considered as important policy of the government to enhance social welfare, particularly in empowering women within society.
