Abstract
The purpose of this research is to describe the regulation of prohibition of polygamy for society as regulated in Balinese custom law that is awig-awig. The method used is empirical with the interview technique to the head of traditional village. The results show that marriage arrangements in awig-awig include an understanding of the marriage itself, prerequisites or marriage procedures, marital cancellation and the prohibition of polygamy. Based on interviews with customary chiefs, each member of the community upholds all the rules of community life in their traditional village, including the provisions on marriage, such as a ban on polygamy. This is because violation of the rules in marriage results in the prudency arising from the imposition of sanctions from local law. This proves that as a customary law, awig-awig has an effective role to apply in the sphere of society in every community.
