Abstract

Islam has regulated marriage, among other things. It recommends proposing marriages based on "family principles," meaning that the families of both parties are involved and both approve of their child's marriage. In contrast to the marriage tradition carried out by the people of Rantau Panjang Village, many young people elope, which can lower the social status of the family in society, including people who have low human awareness, and has an impact on teenagers dropping out of school. The research method uses qualitative research; the data collection instrument consists of observation, interviews, and documentation, and the data analysis is descriptive. Research findings: Elopement is carried out when a man and a woman who are still teenagers both like to run away to the house of the man's uncle on the woman's father's side to report that they will carry out the marriage without the consent of their parents. The practice of eloping is something that is not unusual for the people of Rantau Panjang Village, and they pay for the customary offense with a low value so that the perpetrator of the elopement does not receive a deterrent from the offense.
