marriage called "covenant marriage." (The law can be found in Sections
25-901 through 25-906 of the Arizona Revised Statutes.) There is a
pamphlet that describes what steps must be taken to enter into a
covenant marriage. It also lists the limited reasons available for a
legal separation or divorce for those in a covenant marriage. The
pamphlet contains only general information. If you have questions about
covenant marriage, please ask a member of the clergy, a marriage
counselor or an attorney of your choice.

first get a marriage license. (Sections 25-101 and 25-102 of the Arizona
Revised Statutes indicate who may legally marry.) To get a license, a
written application must be filed with the Clerk of the Superior Court
in any county of the state or with some justices of the peace, city
