Child marriage is categorized as a marriage between one or both spouses are under the age of 18. Many believe that child marriage is extended as a gender issue because of the effect of the harm for the young brides. In order to create a comprehensive perspective on the issue, the examination study must be conducted. Most of the countries essay to reduce the praxis and somehow to end it. Indonesia is one of the countries which experience the inclination of child marriage number. In 2015, the prevalence of child marriage in Indonesia was 23%, and it was dipped from 24 % in 2013. Moreover, Indonesia is one of the exciting places to examine child marriage because of its culturally, religiously, and geographically diversities. This secondary analysis used the data from Indonesian Statistic Bureau and other scientific resources. The historical assessment and policy related to it are presented to generate the perspective toward the young marriage in Indonesia. As a result, the cultural and religious contexts are playing permissive roles to child marriage in Indonesia. Based on those contexts, the marriage for minors aims to fortify them from premarital sex and pregnancy outside marriage. Besides, based on the marriage law, marriage is not categorized as illegitimate. Nevertheless, the cases are not natural behaviour to be directly accepted. The study is keen to support the impartial perspective to discern either the child marriage in cultural and religious contexts or child rights. The attempt to address it is through religiously and culturally proficiency and appreciation while at the same time, directing those in order to minimize minors to be victimized of child marriage.
