This descriptive study aimed at (1) examining people’s possession of marriage certificate, (2) figuring out factors preventing ones from acquiring a marriage certificate, and (3) investigating the efforts of the civil registry office to raise people’s awareness of the importance of having marriage certificate. Data were collected through observation, interviews, and documentation. The results of this study revealed that most people did not have marriage certificates. This was due to their unawareness of the importance of marriage certificate, low educational background, and low economic background; hence, they rather had an unregistered marriage. In line with the effort to raise people's awareness of marriage certificate, the civil registry office had reduced the cost of making marriage certificates provided that they could show a relief letter (SKTM) issued by their village administration. The civil registry office also organized a marriage preparation course (SUSCATIN) and socialized the procedures to acquire the marriage certificate.
