Nothing says "I love you" like divorce papers. So a Michigan lawyer has decided to celebrate Valentine's Day by giving away a free divorce.
Walter H. Bentley III says he got the idea after a student at a night-school class he teaches invited him to a party to celebrate her divorce. He told ABC News that this led to a revelation: "Why not do something special for Valentine's Day? You can't find a new love before you close the chapter on the old."
According to Bentley's website, the winner of the free divorce has to come up with "the most compelling and convincing story" attesting to why he or she deserves a free ride to relationship freedom.
There are a few catches: The split has to be uncontested and have minimal child custody issues. You also need to be a Michigan resident. Bentley says nearly 500 people have already applied.
