Prior to , Arizona had the advantage of requiring neither a blood test nor a 3 day waiting period before a hurried couple could marry.

Virginia Ruth filed suit for divorce within 2 years, but just as the decree was becoming final, she filed an affidavit asking that the final decree not be entered.
