Covenant Marriage: As of August 21, 1998, Arizona incorporated into statue a new type of marriage called "covenant marriage."...
The State Legislature has created a type of marriage in Arizona called "covenant marriage." It does not replace the kind of marriage already available. Instead it offers an additional option to couples who wish to marry. The covenant marriage differs both in the steps necessary to get married and the reasons why a legal separation or divorce may be granted by the court.
To enter into a covenant marriage, the couple first must have counseling (called "premarital counseling") from a member of the clergy or a marriage counselor. Then, when applying for a license to be married, both persons must show
their intention to enter into a covenant marriage by signing a special statement (or "declaration") on the application form. In a covenant marriage, legal separation or divorce (in Arizona, a "dissolution of marriage") may be granted by the
court only for specific reasons listed in state law. These are explained in the following pages.
By law (Section
25-901 of the Arizona Revised Statutes) a person must state
their intention to enter into a covenant marriage.
For a covenant marriage, the court can only grant a
divorce (“dissolution of marriage” in Arizona) or a legal separation
for certain, limited reasons.

Earned my *F* the hard way; no longer defining mysel
It's pretty common for a WS to lie to their family, though. Some people will do ANYTHING to make themselves look good.
Came to a good realization today. I have always been the stronger one in the relationship. I've alwasy been the good person, he wasn't always so good. I've always taken the high road, even when every baser instinct said to get down and dirty and kick some tail, figuritively and literally speaking.
He has always broken promises. I should have caught that when they were still little promises. Those are the easy ones to keep. Will see this red flag if it ever appears in a new relationship....and I will walk away.
He has always been selfish. I should have caught that when we were still dating, but, lesson learned.
I don't think he likes who he truly is. I'm positive he knows that he is the pathetic one. Not me.
I'm not the broken one. Amazing how his brokenness never ceases to amaze me.
And most important, I like myself. I really do!
