The evasion of law practice to obtain the legality of marriage is the focus of this paper, because interfaith marriage in Indonesia is prohibited. Its arguee that when marriage is interpreted as predestination from God as the basis of its justification, the conversion of the beliefs of different religioncouples marriage is considered reasonable. The phrase "in the name of love" are not the main factor that drives a person to convert his beliefs for marriage, but rational and pragmatic considerations of the bride and groom. Conversion of beliefs in ways of interfaith couples to negotiate with the law, so that the marriage gets legality, both in religious law and state law. The practice of converting this belief shows that the culture of religious conversion law in Indonesia tends to be negative adaptive. The impact of the legal culture that is wrapped in the words magic and matriarchal culture makes women victims, because the majority of women do religious conversion.
