Divorce is Big Business and Getting Bigger


As the old saying goes, "one person's loss is another person's gain." Divorce is no exception to this rule. Divorce attorneys have known this for years and have do well by many divorcing couples.

Marital dissolution is a $28 billion dollar business, according to maritalstatus.com. It's no surprise that outside investors have been inventing new ways to cash in on a piece of the action in the recent past.

The divorcing population, a once marginalized group, is now being marketed to.

There are oodles of gift websites for divorcing men and women. Souvenirs cover a wide variety of items and appeal to a wide array of people. They include mugs and t-shirts about being "free," celebratory divorce cakes, pre-written alimony checks with nasty messages written in like, "Payable to: Cause of All My Pain," wedding ring coffins, ex-wife toilet paper and even knife holders in the shape of your ex-spouse.
