It is too easy for couples to process their divorces as long as they have reached an agreement. Under the present law, couples receive divorce certificates immediately if they produce their marriage certificate, identity cards, property certificate and then sign a joint statement. It takes about an hour and the divorce fee is about 10 yuan. Many make hasty decisions over trivial issues and regret it later. Possibly a cooling-off period allows them to reflect on their decision to divorce.
