Abstract

This article aims to explore further the shifting views of Balinese wanderers about customary marriage law. The approach used is a qualitative approach. The Balinese tradition which cannot be separated from Hinduism, is an ancestral custom that must be maintained by the Balinese people. One of them is to hold a traditional marriage to maintain the continuity of the patrilieal family system (kapurusa). The traditional marriage left a problem when the family did not have a son. To be more complicated, if the problem is experienced by the Balinese overseas people in a heterogeneous society and different cultural customs. As an actualization of the darma, the Balinese wanderers in DIY continue to obey the customary marriage law. Swadharma and swadikara only continued by kapurusa, reincarnation through kapurusa, is a reason to continue to obey adat marriage. Intermingling with the community in overseas areas and other factors has led to the dynamics of the views of the nomads and has become more open, such as accepting forms of marriage pada gelahang to accommodate change while maintaining the main principles of Balinese customary marriage law.
