For better or worse, til death do them part...those are the vows most couples take when they get married, but many of those marriages still end in divorce. Sunday night, almost 50 couples in Beebe renewed their vows, and entered covenant marriages. In 2001, the Arkansas Legislature passed the Covenant Marriage Act, limiting couples from divorce except in extreme cases like adultery, abuse or imprisonment. It also requires that couples have marital counseling before getting married and if ever considering divorce. The pastor at Union Valley Baptist Church in Beebe, where the couples were married, says marriage has been under attack andd the covenant is a chance for couples to make a statement of commitment. "Seventy percent of marriages are performed in the church, but almost 60% end in divorce. With the marriage covenant act, it give a little insulation, some boundaries there," said Rev. Tommy Miller, Union Valley Baptist Church. The act also prevents divorce in the first two years of a covenant marriage.
