Aik Dewa Village, Pringgasela District, is one of the villages that has a KB village in East Lombok Regency. The obstacle faced in Aikdewa village is the low level of awareness about Marriage Age Maturity (PUP) so that early marriage often occurs. So far, efforts to increase public awareness have only used counseling with one method, namely lectures. Method Alternative solutions that can be done to overcome these obstacles is to conduct counseling with several methods. The several methods that researchers use in this counseling are lectures, watching together, and discussions. In addition, the extension process also requires the right media and is carried out in a sustainable and massive manner. The product of this counseling cannot be seen directly because it is in the form of changes in knowledge, behavior, attitudes, and decisions for each individual. To measure the success of the counseling that was carried out, the researcher conducted a pretest and posttest as well as interviews. Pretest and posttest questions related to maturation of marriage age (PUP) and early marriage and its impacts. Posttest results after counseling showed an increase in the knowledge and understanding of the counseling participants at SMAN 1 Pringgasela and MTs NW Nurul Iman Aikdewa.
