Are Divorce Parties Empowering Depressingly Crass?
On the bright side, perhaps divorce is losing a little bit of its stigma (that it’s ultimately a ‘failure’ that should never be celebrated) – when the reality is that divorce is mostly part of many people’s journey in learning about relationships and love – and families changing form.
How many people divorce and ten years later feel that they made a big mistake? Not that many, I would bet. Especially those who continue to have a healthy co-parenting relationship with their Ex.
Personally, I don’t have an issue with ‘divorce parties’. But I think they should be kept for a couple of years post-breakup and when the couple are in a healthy and happy frame of mind, so they can genuinely celebrate rather than drown their sorrows.
