Abstract

Marriage and divorce are two different sides of domestic life. They have seized the attention that not only happened in urban communities, but also rural areas. This study investigated women as divorce planners in Baubau and the strengthening value of marriage for Butonese women through the Posuo tradition, as well as the mechanism of divorce in the context of ethnic groups. This study approached the data through Edmund Huserl’s phenomenology theory. It is emphasizing on the ones’ consciousness that lead to the life world. "Consciousness" is used here as a model for understanding marriage which has implications for the divorce of Buton women. The result of this study showed that the increasing cases of divorce in Buton that involved women as the divorce planners related to women's awareness and ability to negotiate with themselves and household problems. It is also showed that Butonese has a medium to strengthen the value of marriage by giving women education about married life before they got to it. In the mechanisme of divorce, woman perceived an easy way to get through when they become the plaintiff.
