When a relationship comes to an end, what do you do with all of the objects associated with that relationship? You know... the objects that have expired sentimental value attached to them? Sure you could take the fantastically therapeutic and non-environmentally friendly approach of ceremoniously burning them or throw them away as some sort of hazardous waste bag. Or... you could contribute them to the Museum of Broken Relationships.
The Museum of Broken Relationships is both a physical and virtual museum which promises to help an individual get rid of "controversial objects" that trigger "undesirable" emotions. It turns your objects from past relationships into a museum pieces, thereby "preserveing the collective emotional history". All contributions to the exhibit are submitted with info about the length of the relationship and story behind the object.
