WANT to break up with your lover but haven't got the guts? Enter Bernd Dressler, head of the Separation Agency in Germany, who will calmly and efficiently do the dirty work for you.
For another $15, the unhappy Romeo - or Juliet - can opt for the "break-up by letter" which, as the name implies, involves Dressler drafting a "Dear John" or "Dear Jane" letter on the client's behalf.
In Germany, where 57 per cent of marriages end in divorce, the business of separation has flourished to the point where the country's first divorce fair is set to take place this year in the western city of Dusseldorf.
"Personally, I could never imagine hiring someone to announce on my behalf that I wanted to break up with them. But I'm from a different generation. I think the young people of today feel less responsible. "
