Between 2014 and 2016, Rumah Kita Bersama (Rumah KitaB) conducted research on child marriage in
Banten, West Java (Cirebon, Cisarua/Bogor, Sukabumi), East Java (Lamongan, Madura), West Nusa Tenggara and South Sulawesi.
This study noted the impact of socio-ecological changes in the change of gender relations in families, which has contributed to the practice of child marriage.
It also examined the influence of formal and informal institutions, as well as religious views perpetuated through cultural beliefs and practices, all of which have an impact on the practice of child marriage.
Migration, as a consequence of the changes in socio-ecological space, leaves many girls as the substitute for their parents at home.
At the same time, female sexuality is considered alarming; therefore, it should be expressed only within the institution of marriage.
