Divorce Hotel Ensures Guests Checkout Happily Unmarried

A new concept allows visitors to quickly end their marriage over the course of a weekend.

33-year-old Jim Halfens is an entrepreneur from the Netherlands who has come up with the concept of a Divorce Hotel. Guests check into the hotel as an unhappily married couple, and with the help of mediators and independent lawyers, they checkout three days later with signed divorce papers in hand.

Halfens has tried the concept on 17 couples, where 16 of them have successfully ended with a divorce. The entrepreneur now wishes to introduce the idea to the U.S. and has already negotiated with hotels in several cities, as well as two television production companies for a reality show.

Divorce Hotel charges a flat fee between $3,500 to $10,000, depending on the complexity. Halfens believes that finalizing divorce papers over the weekend is a more financially sound and healthier way than to go through a long legal battle.
