Are Divorce Rings the New Trend?

Writing for a wedding planning website I've learned that nothing gets the soon-to-be-marrieds up in arms like mentioning the word divorce.
Obviously, anyone planning a wedding should only be doing it if they're convinced that their marriage can last, but why does that make these women so upset that other people get divorced?
Want to see what I'm talking about? Visit any of the posts we've done on our wedding blog mentioning divorce-related statistics or items.
This week the New York Times had an article about two new trends in divorces, divorce rings and wedding ring coffins.
I'm curious to know what those who don't work in weddings, and aren't planning a wedding think of these ideas. Brilliant? Morbid? Sad?
