Abstract
This papers discusses the trend of custodial rights of underage children that fall to the fathers after divorce. The Legal Anthropology Study is conducted by interviewing 15 (ffteen) divorced couples wherein custody fell to the fathers. The tendency of granting custody to the fathers is motivated by several factors from the wives: affairs, ill temperaments, neglectful of children, animosity with the in­laws, and the desire to divorce quickly without the burden to care for children. Fathers accept the responsibility as the caregiver of children to show his economic capability; to easily oversee the development of children; to facilitate their daughters when they require custodians for their marriage as well as to provide affections. In caring for children, fathers are assisted by relatives.
