Abstract

Marriage is the most important institution for the Islamic people
especially to form a family that is sakinah, mawaddah and rahmah. Some
Javanese people use days based on Wethon, good days, and so on. Since the
calendar period, which is a blend of native and Hindu Javanese with the year
name Saka (saka calendar) was used by the Javanese people until 1633 AD At the
time of Sultan Agung Hanyakrakusuma, he reigned. The famous king of Mataram
who obeyed Islam changed the calendar on Java in a revolutionary manner. At
that time the Saka calendar had been running until the end of 1554. The figure of
1554 was continued in the Sultan Agung calendar in 1955, even though the basis
of the calculations was completely different. Petungan Jawi has existed for a long
time and is a record of the ancestors based on good and bad experiences recorded
on primbon. The word primbon is derived from the word lush store or deposit, so
the primbon contains various calculations by a generation derived next generation.
Most Javanese have the confidence to use petungan to do things like marriage,
harvesting, building houses and others. In petungan there is a name called weton
in every weton which has its own value.
