    Some states have the option of "covenant marriage," which allows divorce only on specific grounds (such as adultery, abuse, or abandonment) and requires a waiting period with counseling before divorce (I think there's an exception for abuse).  Of course, even after agreeing to this someone can always go to Nevada and get a quickie no-fault divorce.

    And Huckabee and his wife redid their vows in a covenant marriage when it started in Arkansas (which also gave them a wedding gift exception to the rules on elected officials accepting gifts, IIRC).
