The Dutch Heartbreak Hotel offers separating couples throughout the Netherlands and Belgium a unique service: a complete, finalized divorce in just 48 hours.

After paying the 2500 Euro fee, each partner checks into a five-star hotel (separately, of course!), he or she is given access to everything from lawyers to financial consultants and child psychologists in order to make the transition easier.

English-language video explaining how the service works; it also mentions that seven couples have already used the service.
