Abstract

Interfaith marriage is a form of pluralism development in Indonesia. This, however, creates a conflict for someone who chooses to marry someone of a different religion, such as when choosing a child’s religion. Parents will decide the religion of their children when they are still a baby. However, when children understand the law, they will decide their religion which is often at odds with their parent’s decisions. Differences of opinion in making religious decisions will lead to interpersonal conflicts in the family. This research used a qualitative descriptive approach with a constructivism paradigm. This research was carried out in the city of Solo and its surroundings with a population of children from interfaith marriages who have reached the age of 17 years and over. The sampling technique used in this research is purposive sampling. This research aims to determine the conflict and management strategies that exist in families of different religions in making religious decisions for their children. Dyadic power theory is a theory of power that looks at several factors that cause a person to believe he has power over others through interpersonal communication.
