Cutural practices favouring young mariage and high fertility: the case of a Priangan village, West Java



Cutural practices favouring young mariage and high fertility: the case of a Priangan village, West Java



Southeast Asian Studies 25(4): 593-624



The social-cultural contexts of fertility behaviour common to ethnic Sundanese who predominate in the Priangan Highlands, West Java, are examined. The Sudanese have long been well-known for their very young marital age and high fertility. Fertility-related social perceptions and cultural practices were used to provide a basis for explaining regional and ethnic differences in levels and patterns of fertility in Indonsia.
