Article 2 paragraph (1) of Law No. 1 of 1974 states that marriage is valid if it is performed according to each religion and belief. Article 2 paragraph (2) continues that every marriage must be registered. The recorded marriage is a legal marriage as regulated in Article 2 paragraph (1). Thus, in Indonesia, there is no known interfaith marriage. In society, interfaith marriages continue to occur. The purpose of this paper is to explain interfaith marriage from a legal perspective in Indonesia and what couples who perform interfaith marriages do in relation to the implementation of their marriage. This research is normative juridical research. The data used in this research is secondary data (literature). Literature research is carried out by studying various literature, analysing various laws and regulations relating to marriage as well as several judges’ decisions regarding interfaith marriages. The results showed that the Marriage Law did not provide opportunities for interfaith marriages. To overcome the legal vacuum of Law No. 23 of 2006 as amended by Law No. 24 of 2013 concerning Amendments to Law No. 23 concerning Population Administration, it provides opportunities for couples who are going to have interfaith marriages to register their marriages.
