The administrative map of Delta State was acquired and used to prepare the geographical information of the entire road networks of the study area. The choice of nodes was based on population size. Based on the adopted operational definition of major centres, 50 major centres were identified. The Pearson's product-moment correlation coefficient, as well as the regression techniques, were used in the analysis. A high correlation coefficient value (r = 0.60) was obtained between post-secondary institutions (x1) and primary institutions (x3). For access to have meant it should be people-oriented. The correlation between population and functional index of educational facility occurrence gives (r = 0.13). This means that large population centres tend to have fewer numbers and lower order types of educational facilities in the study area. The coefficient of determination of the relationship is given as 0.017 which indicates that population has no effect on the distribution of educational facilities in Delta State. This implies that population alone does not attract the establishment of educational facilities while small population centres tend to be favoured in the study area. Based on the findings recommendation was proffered.</em></p> ATUBI Augustus Orowhigo Copyright (c) 2021 ATUBI Augustus Orowhigo https://creativecommons.org/licenses/by-nc/4.0 2021-07-17 2021-07-17 2 5 1 19 10.47505/IJRSS.2021.9193 Social Behavior of Early Marriage http://ijrss.org/index.php/ijrss/article/view/86 <p>Marriage is an important event for a person's life, therefore before deciding to get married, many things must be considered carefully such as mental readiness, age, economy and so on. Based on the prevailing laws and regulations, namely Law no. 1 of 1974 concerning Marriage, it is stated that the age of marriage actors must have reached the age of 20 years and over for men and for women it is over 16 years. But in reality, there are still many phenomena of marriages carried out by the bride and groom who are still under the age as determined by law. This condition is as happened in Tanjungsiang District, Subang Regency. This research aims to: 1) Describe and analyze the background of the occurrence of early marriage behavior in Tanjungsiang District, Subang Regency. 2) Describe and analyze the social behavior of early marriage actors in Tanjungsiang District, Subang Regency. 3) describe and analyze perceptions of early marriage behavior according to perpetrators and according to marriage guardians in Tanjungsiang District, Subang Regency. 4) Describe and analyze whether there has been a shift in the goals of early marriage behavior in Tanjungsiang District, Subang Regency according to the Indonesian Islamic Law Compilation (KHI) review. This study uses a qualitative approach based on the phenomenological paradigm. The data sources used are primary and secondary data sources.

The results showed that: (1) The background of early marriage in Tanjungsiang District, includes various factors, namely: religious factors, social factors, educational factors, economic factors, self-understanding factors, family factors and tradition factors.

(3) Perceptions regarding early marriage behavior, include: a) according to the perpetrators of early marriage behavior, there is no difference between early and not early, the only difference is the things behind the hastening of the marriage, b) According to the guardian of marriage, Early marriage behavior is considered as a social demand that includes it (4) The purpose of early marriage behavior today has shifted from its ideal concept. This is because the background factor for the marriage is due to temporary interests, such as getting married to cover the family's disgrace caused by the occurrence of pregnancy outside marriage.</p> Epon Umasih Agus Sholahuddin Kridawati Sadhana Copyright (c) 2021 Epon Umasih https://creativecommons.org/licenses/by-nc/4.0 2021-07-24 2021-07-24 2 5 20 32 10.47505/IJRSS.2021.9195
