Abstract

This article aims to review the tension between the Supreme Court Circular Number 2 of 2023
regarding Guidelines for Judges in Adjudicating Cases of Registration of Marriages between
Different Religious and Belief Communities (SEMA) and Law Number 24 of 2013 concerning
Amendments to Law Number 23 of 2006 concerning Population Administration (Adminduk Law),
which creates a contradictory situationregarding interfaith marriages. Interfaith marriages have
sparked controversy because they are not explicitly accommodated in Law Number 1 of 1974
concerning Marriage. As a result, parties involved in legal disputes face difficulties in navigating
the applicable regulations. This article is a normative research with a conceptual approach. The
research results indicate a conflict between SEMA and the Adminduk Law regarding interfaith
marriages in Indonesia, creating inconsistency in legal regulations. SEMA, as a Supreme Court
guideline, suggests rejection of approval, while the Adminduk Law allows it with court
determination as a condition. Hans Kelsen's Stufen theory shows a legal hierarchy, with the
Adminduk Law above SEMA. However, the inconsistency between the two poses challenges in
achieving legal certainty and balancing diversity. The implementation of the Stufen Theory in
Indonesia involves a hierarchy of regulations, with SEMA included as a type of regulation.
Although SEMA applies in the judiciary, debates surrounding the rejection of interfaith
marriages highlight the inconsistency with the Adminduk Law.
