Abstract

This paper contains a description of the posuo ritual in the Baubau community. This study aims to explore and understand the values of religious character education contained in the posuo culture in the Baubau community. Collecting data through in-depth interviews, observation and literature study. This research reveals that the posuo ritual is a custom of the people of Baubau City which is very important in shaping the character of girls before marriage so that they have a positive outlook. Posuo aims to be implemented for humanity. In practice, posuo is carried out by teenage girls, who are required to go through posuo before marriage, because in the posuo there is guidance for moral education. Through this moral education, marriage provision is inherited as an important part in the phase of character building in the household system. The contextualization of the posuo is a major part of the continuation of the marriage, which is expected to be a form of inheritance of religious education in the family, with the main hope of forming Sakinah, Mawaddah, wa rahmah. So that the complete knowledge of the inheritance of the posuo is also expected to prevent and / or reduce the divorce rate. Another advantage of holding this posuo ritual is because in the ritual process it can improve the relationship between fellow Baubau City residents. But now, this ceremony is rarely performed by the community, the cause is due to economic factors and lack of socialization.
