Underage marriage is a marriage carried out where one of the prospective partners or both of them has not reached the age of maturity or has not met the age requirements that have been determined by Law Number 16 of 2019 concerning Marriage in Article 7 paragraph (1) it is stated "Marriage is only permitted if men and women have reached the age of 19 years. This problem is interesting to study about the role of Marriage Registrar Employees in minimizing underage marriages in Gunung Meriah District and the obstacles and efforts of Marriage Registrars in minimizing underage marriages to create a sakinah family. This type of research is qualitative. Qualitative is the result of research that produces descriptive data. Descriptive data is data stated by respondents in writing or verbally as well as real behavior carried out through direct observation using a juridical-empirical approach, namely data obtained directly from the field. Data were obtained through library research and field research. The results showed that the role of the Marriage Registrar in minimizing underage marriages was to increase the administrative procedures for checking files strictly for couples who were registering marriages and collaborating with village officials in conducting socialization of Article 7 paragraph (1) regarding the age limit for marriage. Obstacles for marriage registrar employees in minimizing underage marriages are the lack of public understanding about the regulation of marriage age in article 7 paragraph (1) and the location of the residence that is difficult to reach. The solution for the Marriage Registrar is to conduct socialization and counseling about the age limit for marriage, conduct marriage guidance for prospective brides and provide guidance for sakinah families.
