Hong Kong has become known as a place for ending marriages in recent years because of the booming number of divorce claims in the last decade. Many people blame the high pressure of living in this city as the catalyst for divorce, while others point to the materialistic nature of society. Regardless of the actual reason, the situation is clear, and the only real question is what people are going to do about it.
