Sirri marriage is a marriage that is carried out by a couple without notification (registered) at the Office of Religious Affairs (KUA), but this marriage has fulfilled the elements of marriage in Islam, which includes two brides, two witnesses, a guardian, consent, and also the dowry. This marriage Sirri is legal according to religion, but not according to positive law (state law). Inheritance right is a law that regulates that the inheritance of a person who has passed away is given to those who are entitled, such as families and communities who are more entitled. Meanwhile, the inheritance rights obtained by the child resulting from the Sirri marriage can only be obtained from the mother, unless the biological father recognizes and grants the inheritance right which is called wajibat.
