Mixed marriages in Indonesia were
initially reguleted through GHR S. 1898-158, which enabled the mixed marriages
of candidate husbands/wives who possessed certain differences. Thus,the regulation was withdrawn through the introduction of Law
Number 1 of 1974 regarding marriages. Regarding mixed marriages, in accordance
with Article 57, the allowed mixed marriages were the one which candidate
husbands/wives who possessing different nationalities, and of which the
marriages were performed in Indonesia.
When the difference of the candidate
husband or wife lies in their respective religion, then the marriage would
still be possible to be established outside Indonesia provided it is allowed in
that particular country and as long as the Indonesian citizen taking part in
that marriage does not transgress any marriage laws in Indonesia. A marriage
between people with different denominations is allowed in Indonesia.
