I've never heard of this before, and was really surprised!

I watched a unique ceremony on TV the other day. People have wedding ceremonies, but how many people have a divorce ceremony?  
The couple getting a divorce invited their friends and had a party. The master of ceremonies ("shikaisha") introduced their personal histories. Some of their friends said a few words. It was exactly the same as a wedding ceremony, but there was one big difference. They broke their wedding rings with a hammer. 
If you were invited, would you go?
