You do not need a middleman to break up the relationship here in India. That job is usually done by the family members / kith and kin who sometimes break the bones also.

Do they have something like Patch-up-agents as well or are they only interested in helping people to break-up gently? It is sad that there are more individuals and agencies to help people to separate than to help them PATCH-UP and go on with their lives. This in itself shows how much we believe in maintaining a bond, relationship, commitment or agreement. Just like the "hire and fire" policy of employers which plays havoc with workers and making their lives so very unstable; in marriage also we are promoting the unsympathetic pattern of: "if you are not happy, simply pack up and go" and leave the other in the lurch.
