Keywords:Human being, legal relationship, Marriage Law, religious elements
Every human being cannot live alone apart from the life of the group. It is human nature to be able to live side by side with each other and try to continue the offspring by means of marriage, which is a legal relationship between a man and a woman for quite a long time. Marriage is an important legal event and is bound in human life, namely birth, life, and death. Therefore, government intervention is necessary in its regulation. The definition of marriage itself is stated in Law no. 1 of 1974 concerning Marriage which states that: "Marriage is an inner and outer bond between a man and a woman as husband and wife with the aim of forming a happy and eternal family (household) based on God Almighty." From the definition above, it can be imagined that religious elements cannot be separated in the marriage process, even though the legislation combines religious elements with legal administrative in accordance with Article 2 paragraph 2 (two) of the Marriage Law. In line with the era of globalization and the growing flow of information from outside to inside, many Indonesian citizens carry out mixed marriages with foreigners. This situation is one of the reasons why many Indonesians marry foreigners. Mixed marriages are marriages that involve partners with different nationalities, both from individuals who are married or from the families of each individual. This marriage is common in several developed and developing countries due to the flow of workers and foreign tourists who inhabit a country's territory.
