When will we celebrate?

Today it has been a hundred years since the Norvegians got a divorce from the Swedes. Both countries seem to be doing fine (apart from the fact that they are welfarestates).

More recently, in 1993 the Slovaks separated from the Czechs. To my impression a move that seems to benefit both countries, even the poorer Slovakia as it is able to tailor its economic policy more aptly to the Slovak situation.

When will the sad marriage that is Belgium seek a similar solution?
