Young Purwakarta lovers threatened with marriage if caught alone after 9 PM

Young couples in Purwakarta regency will have to marry each other immediately if caught alone after 9 pm, to prevent pre-marital sex, the regent said.

Raids by the neighbourhood chief and security guards would implement the rule, said Purwakarta Regent Dedi Mulyadi, according to Kabar24.com news website.

If a man has not left his girlfriend’s house by the appointed time, “they will be forced to get married,” Dedi told nearly 200 village chiefs during a gathering on Monday, Kabar24.com reported.

“Agree!” the village chiefs responded, according to the report.

Dedi said the rule would be implemented throughout the district from September. Failure to implement the rule would result in village aid being withheld, he said.

“We want to create a Purwakarta that is cultured.”

One village chief, Dadan Jakaria, said he had already implemented such a rule.

“We have erected roadlocks and we require visiting boyfriends to surrender their ID card or student card,” he was quoted as saying.
