Amber Clisura poses for a picture next to the meat smoker she donated to the new Museum of Broken Relationships Wednesday, Dec. 28, 2016, in Los Angeles. After her husband asked for a divorce, Clisura gave back her engagement ring, kicked him out of the house and tossed everything that reminded her of the ruined marriage. Except for one item: a polished steel barbecue smoker that her future ex-husband had fashioned for her from an old oil drum. (AP Photo/Chris Carlson)
