Abstract

Introduction: Indonesian law provides different age limits for adults. Each law provides its limits. The lowest age is found in the law of marriage Marriage, and the highest in civil law in general. Examine the law age limit in Indonesia, and analyzing the ideal age limit in Indonesian law in the future. This research uses secondary data in the form of law materials. The approach used is philosophical, namely looking at the provisions of the ideal adult age limit in the future. The age limit for adults in many laws and regulations varies. The Marriage Law differs from the age limit. The Child Protection Law, the General Election Law, and Population Administration Law. The impact of the inconsistencies in the age boundaries of adults creates an overlapping situation. There needs to be a uniformity of age restrictions in all laws and regulations in Indonesia.
