Rocky marriage? Try a trial divorce

COUPLES are being offered a 'trial divorce" by a divorce counseling agency in a service designed to save broken marriages, Youth Daily reported today.

The firm charges between 50 yuan (US$7.35) to 30,000 yuan depending on the difficulties, the report said. Nearly 40 couples have signed up for the service and 80 percent of them reunited after receiving counseling.

The trial divorce lasts for half a year, said Ming Li of Shanghai Weiqing Business Consulting Ltd, which also trades under the name Divorce Club.

"Many couples have divorced on impulse and regretted it afterwards," said Ming. "The trial divorce lets them experience life on their own to see whether they still love each other, whether they regret anything and whether they want a reunion."

However the "trial divorce" is not protected by law and not recognized by the civil affairs bureau, according to the report.
