divorcio al vapor
 n.— «The demand for divorce is often so urgent that Ms. Villacres and other lawyers tell of a shadowy phenomenon known as divorcio al vapor—where a man eager to shed a wife files for divorce here and sends a summons to his native country that is delivered to an address where his wife does not live. The claim is made that the spouse could not be located.» —“Breakups Without Borders” by Joseph Berger New York Times Oct. 11, 2005. (source: Double-Tongued Dictionary)
