Paris Houses the World's First Divorce Fair

Share

With the number of divorces not lowering, Paris became the place where recently couples had the possibility to visit the first divorce fair. It was reported that the fair attracted at least 4,000 visitors.

This might sound controversial since Paris for a long time has been considered one of the places that couples choose to get engaged. The divorce fair was named "New Start" and it included 60 booths with divorce lawyers and counselors.

In addition, the visitors could also talk to makeover specialists, representatives of laser surgery firms, weight loss advisors, tarot readers as well as self-esteem coaches.

The event also featured conferences and panels arguing topics like online dating, seduction, plastic surgery and legal issues.

According to Brigitte Gaumet, the organizer of the Paris divorce fair, the most visited booths were the one that provided legal advice.

It is worth mentioning that this year the Paris witnesses 130,000 divorces, which is much more compared to the figure registered 3 years ago, when about 50,000 couples got divorced.

PS Starting Over Show differs from the Austria event in that no private detectives or DNA testers will be exhibiting!

agree that it might be the crisis to lead to divorces or it might be that women in france can't cook so men have to go to restaurants and not spend time at home, eating with their spouse.
