What is a covenant marriage in Arkansas?

Do you watch the show "19 Kids & Counting"? If so, you may have seen that one of the stars from the program got married in Arkansas so that she and her husband could get a covenant marriage. Only three different states have this option, and Arkansas is one of them. However, having seen this, you may have found yourself wondering what type of marriage this really is.

Grounds are required for Arkansas divorces

In some states, unhappily married couples can end legal unions without blaming a spouse for wrongdoing. Technically, you can get a divorce in Arkansas without accusing a spouse of misconduct. A divorce may be granted for spouses who've lived apart for at least 18 months or due to mistreatment called "general indignities."
