Arkansas is among a handful of states that allows covenant marriage. In this type of marriage couples waive their right to a no-fault divorce and agree to pre-marital counseling. By waiving their right to a no-fault divorce, couples essentially limit their options should they want to dissolve their marriage.
Arkansas was also the gubernatorial seat of former president Bill Clinton, and it was in Arkansas that the famous case of Clinton v. Jones began.
