Divorce gift list service

40

A high street store has launched a divorce gift service for unhappy couples, who are celebrating splitting.
Debenhams say they have introduced the service because when a couple splits, they generally only have one of each necessary household item.
This contrasts the traditional wedding list which some argue are outdated because couples tend to live together prior to being wed — and have things they need.
Susgested items on the Divorce Gift List include cookware, cutlery, crockery, glasses and bedlinen.
Other things which are expected to be popular are non-iron shirts, large plasma screen TVs and computer games — we can’t imagine, who those might be for.
A spokesperson for Debenhams said:” “With so many couples now living together before they marry, the Wedding Gift List concept is now regarded as more of an upgrade service, rather than stocking up the first home with the basics.
“However, a divorce means that one partner will be leaving the marital home and, therefore, be left without any essentials in their new house.
“Divorcing can be an expensive time and registering for a Divorce Gift List means that family and friends can help the newly-separated begin their new life.”
