'Couple-busting' company finds who your spouse is cheating with; becomes friends with them

As odd as it sounds, it seems you can rent any kind of person for any occasion in Japan. From little sisters to accompany you on pretend dates, to older men to give you sage advice, money can buy you whatever human interaction you need.

And now another uncomfortable part of life can be safely purchased away thanks to the “couples-busting” Tokyo company Ginza Ladis 1. They’re offering one of the most bizarre and elaborate human rental services we’ve ever seen: you rent someone to become close friends with your cheating spouse’s partner, and then that person convinces them to break up with your spouse for you.

What Ginza Ladis 1 does may sound incredible, but we haven’t even scratched the surface yet.

A representative from the company recently gave an interview where he talked at length about their tactics. He claimed that they go all out when it comes to dispatching a new “friend” to your cheating spouse’s partner. They find out what their hobbies and interests are and have the “friend-to-be” go to the same events, classes, gym, and more to get closer to them.

And what if they don’t have any hobbies? That’s easy. They just slip free coupons for events into their mailbox and basically force a hobby upon them.

Not only that, but one of Ginza Ladis 1’s subsidiaries is a movie company, so they employ professional actors as the people who will become “friends” with your cheating spouse’s partner.

With their movie connections, they even set up “scenes” at fancy hotels, expensive apartments, or even whole cafes that they only open for one day, just to be more convincing. They’ve even used police cars and helicopters before, all in the name of gaining the person’s trust.

And once they finally have that trust, they use it to convince that person to stop cheating with your spouse. Not in a strict or angry way, but as their friend who cares about them and wants to see them leave that unhealthy relationship with their head held high, because they deserve better.

Setting aside for a moment how crazy this all may sound, anyone who has been cheated on before can tell you that even if you get rid of the person your significant other is cheating with, that doesn’t necessarily mean it will stop.

Ginza Ladis 1 acknowledges this, and they offer a variety of counseling/self-help programs to try and rekindle your relationship. They can get rid of the person your spouse is cheating with, but they admit that the rest is up to you. Although… if you’ve already gone and secretly hired someone to get rid of your spouse’s side-girl/guy, then we can’t imagine your communication is in a healthy place. Maybe, uh, start there?

Either way, taking a look at the “couples-busting” plans that Ginza Ladis 1 has available, it seems like this is a rich couples’ problem-solving service only. The most basic plan (30 days and see what happens) costs 380,000 yen, and the most expensive plan (240 days with success guaranteed) costs 8,600,000 yen.

If you want to see it for yourself, you can check out Ginza Ladis 1’s website in English or Japanese. Though honestly, if it were us being cheated on, we’d just rent a hot guy to come and wipe our tears away. Much more affordable.

Just divorce the two timing piece of crap!

This company is going to be sued out of existence in a hurry. Stupid concept.

Hire a stalker! Weird, communication seems lost in Japan

Spend the money on divorce and finding someone who wants to be with you.

What an idiotic concept!

I could think of other stuff I'd like to hire someone to do to the person cheating with my partner...

4 ( +4 / -0 )

Hire a stalker to lie and coerce a stranger so you can stay with a no good liar who cheats on you. Absolutely disgusting.

Only those with self esteem and anger issues would use a service like this.

First world problems.

Humans are not monogamous beings; despite best intentions. Affairs, one night stands etc will happen. It's up to the two individuals to maintain their relationship by talking, counselling or putting it behind them.

You forgot a three letter word starting with s and ending with x.

That's a given. Spice up the love life, introduce playful elements, maybe new people, toys, role playing and so on...

Dump the real wife, and get a silicone wife!!

Totally agree with Heretic. Inevitably the sex suffers in long term relationships. using toys, props, and specific lighting techniques can put the eroticism back into a stale and lifeless marriage. partner sharing also helps in some cases.

Many people here like taking the long way to solve a problem so this company will make money hand over fist. By the looks of it, they already are. What is it I once said? Oh yeah: A fool and their money are easy to break up.

Maybe a good business model. If they succeeded with a client, the chances of the repeat would still be pretty high and there could be 2nd, 3rd.....
