Ah, le divorce. Thedissolution of a marriage is so inconvenient, so uncomfortable, so… lacking incontinental breakfasts. Well, at least it was until one Dutchentrepreneur/genius named Jim Halfens decided to open the Divorce Hotel, aone stop shop (actually, there are six branches conveniently scattered acrossthe Netherlands) for couples looking for quickie divorces. “They arrive onFriday and we give them everything they need to leave Sunday with their divorcepapers,” says Halfens. “Divorces can cost a lot of money and a lot of time.Here, it’s done in three days.” Couples who check into the hotel are givenaccess to lawyers, mediators, psychologists and separate accommodations. Theprice of the hotel package varies depending on the complexity of the couple’sassets, but generally falls somewhere between $2,500 and $10,000. The point isit allows you to legally end your marriage in comfort and style.
