Breaking Up Is Hard to Do; But Very Profitable

Italy is holding its first divorce fair, to help couples facing marriage break-ups.
Organisers say the event in Milan aims to help divorcing couples with legal proceedings and how to start afresh.

Services include life coaching, beauty tips and advice on how to get rid of ex-spouses who turn into stalkers.

Divorce levels in the traditionally Catholic country have been relatively low until recently, but there has been a dramatic rise in the last few years.

The fair, Ex? Punto e a capo, meaning 'turning over a new leaf', includes workshops and stalls on not just the process of divorce, but how to adapt to living alone again.

There will be a special speed-dating evening, as well as art therapy and spa offers to raise self-esteem, say organisers.


Speed dating? Hope springs eternal.
