The study aimed to research and analyze the trend of getting married in the Office of Religious Affairs in Society 5.0. Also, this field research is to make observations about a phenomenon in a scientific situation to explain and prove situations and phenomena that are clearer about the conditions, so the type of approach used is qualitative.
