SOUTHFIELD, Mich. - An attorney is offering a free divorce on Valentine's Day to the couple with the best break-up story.
Walter Bentley III, an attorney and law professor, said the idea came from a student's different take on love.
"So she was having a divorce party to celebrate her divorce," Bentley said, "and I thought about Valentine's Day and said, 'Hey, why not help someone move on to that independence on Valentine's Day?'"
The contest offers one uncontested divorce, about a $3,000 value.
Entries via his website are due by February 12.
Bentley said he has already had several applicants.
"They're basically separated from their spouse but they're living in the house together and it's a very contentious house because no one has the money to move forward," he said of one free-divorce seeker. "We're really looking for the most heartwarming, that person who truly deserves it."
