Divorce ceremonies in Japan

In Japan one in every four marriages ends up in divorce, it is one of the highest rates in the world. Seeing this data, a bright entrepreneur had the idea of starting a business to organize divorce ceremonies for 500 euros (600 dollars). The culminating moment is the celebration of the destruction of the ring with a special hammer. The ceremony is expensive but at least you don’t have to arrange a journey to Orodruin.

    There’s some church in Korea that organises marriages of thousands of people all at once, “buy in bulk and do it cheaper!” being the motto. Maybe they could do bulk divorces too, have a car crusher and chuck all the rings in at once.
