Divorce Call by Proxy

One question I am asked a lot is how to tell your spouse you want a divorce.  I say there is no easy way to do it.  For those who simply cannot face it, I send a letter saying I am representing your spouse in their marital difficulties and they have asked me to work out a separation agreement with you.

Leave it to enterprising net people to come up with a new way to break up as reported by Catherine Rampell in today’s New York Times.  For $50, iDUMP4U.com will make the Divorce Call to your soon to be ex.  The website also offers a $10 Basic Breakup for unmarried couples and a $25 Engagement Breakoff.

The company tells your ex why you are breaking up and specifically what he or she did wrong.  And if you think that’s bad, the company records its calls and posts them on its website.
