In this chapter, which is based on literature research (both offline and online) and conversations with mediators and ritual counselors, I explore divorce rituals as a generally absent but emerging ritual. First, I review the literature regarding divorce rituals. Second, I go into the question why people hesitate to perform divorce rituals, notwithstanding the many models and possibilities for designing a ritual offered in literature and by ritual counselors.
