Many resorts offer a couples getaway package, where sweethearts can escape
their daily grind and spend some time having fun with each other. But
a new hotel is allowing couples to experience a permanent "get away"
- from each other. The Divorce Hotel, located in the Netherlands, is specifically
designed for people who want to get their
divorce over and done with in a timely fashion. At this unique hotel, men and
women are given separate accommodations, a lawyer, and all the paperwork
needed to file a quick divorce. The hotel's owner told ABC News that
the hotel provides all the amenities needed to end a marriage the right way.
Currently, six boutique hotels in the Netherlands offer a divorce package.
The instigator of this unique vacation experience says that he hopes to
bring The Divorce Hotel to the United States, where one out of every two
marriages ends in divorce. He also says that his hotels allow people to
view divorce in a positive light, and even enjoy the process. Before people
can book a stay at The Divorce Hotel, they are required to interview with
the staff. Messy divorces often can't be remedied with the simple
processes offered at this hotel, so they double check with each of their
couples to make sure that they are mature enough to handle the separation.
The Divorce Hotel owner says that he hopes that TV stations will agree
to shooting a reality T.V. show about the his hotel, which would help
to get publicity out there and encourage people to book a stay.
