Abstract:Customary marriage law is an important part of Lahu culture. It reflects aspects of love, engagement,marriage, divorce, re-marriage, inheritance of property and improper sexual relations. The majority of Lahu marriage law is consistent with the Marriage Law of the People's Republic of China, though certain conflicts remain. Only by taking the initiative to adjust to the Marriage Law of the People’s Republic of China, can it better play a positive role in Lahu society.
Keywords:Lahu, marriage custom law, the Marriage Law of the People's Republic of China, integration, conflict
