This discussion here is about  the different styles of communication in the marriage of the Bataknese and the Javanese. The research is how the Bataknese as the nomads interact in communication in their mix-marriage. To analyze the phenomenon, I will use the theories of communication and acculturation and the method of qualitative. By using the theories and method  I will analyze how the Bataknese and the Javanese overcome their conflicts in their marriage due to the differences  in communication to reach the harmony in their mix-marriage.


differences; conflicts; communication style; acculturation; harmony.
