Putting on wedding ringArizona marriage requirements are straightforward. No blood test is required, and no copy of a divorce decree, although you’ll need government-issued I.D. Both of you must be present to apply for the marriage license, which you’ll receive the same day. It’s good for a year. The license fee is $76.

Additionally, Arizona is one of four states (the others being Arkansas, Kansas, and Louisiana) that permit covenant marriages. Essentially, couples seeking one must vow to meet stricter standards, both for marriage and divorce, and attend pre-marital counseling.

For more details, including on covenant marriages, contact the Clerk of Superior Court’s Office for Maricopa County, where both Phoenix and Scottsdale are located.
