If you're experiencing marital strife, the thought of sharing your two-week holiday in the Maldives with a marriage guidance counsellor may not be conducive to patching things up.
Now Indian travel firm's idea to use holidays to pull couples back from the brink of divorce catches on, the concept could be heading for Britain.
Mumbai-based KV Tours and Travels is offering 'divorce tourism' packages where couples are accompanied by a relationship counsellor to encourage them to give things another go.
Despite the fact that India has one of the world's lowest divorce rates with one in 100 married couples breaking up, it is apparently on the rise.
KV Tours and Travels chief executive Vijesh Thakker, who was inspired by the break-up of a friend's marriage, said: 'With divorce tourism, what we're trying to do is to bring together couples who are heading towards divorce to stop them.
'Nowadays divorce rates are rising, so we need to sort it out. It's a good thing we're doing. And we're helping domestic and international governments by promoting tourism.
'We're not destiny changers, we want them to treat the trip like a second honeymoon.'
Clinical psychologist and psychotherapist Rhea Pravin Tembhekar said the idea might work in some cases - but not all.
She said: 'If you're fighting about trivial things, like time management or in-laws issues - "my mother, your mother, my money, your money, etcetera" - maybe a holiday might work.
'But sometimes the issues are very critical, like domestic violence. You can't go on holiday and resolve that.'
Daneil & Daniel’s Managing partner Mr.K.P.Satish kumar said this kind of tourism reduces the misunderstanding between the couples and helps to reduce the divorce rates.
