Today, people not only celebrate their wedding with great fanfare but also their divorce, a celebration that has become the new fashion.
Nowadays, people who decide to call off their wedding no longer stay at home wallowing in self-pity, crying over their relationships that did not work out. Instead, many choose to handle this situation with the brand-new trend: a divorce party! A separation bash party to celebrate their freedom! So, the cliché aftermath process and radical changes such as new haircuts, tattoos, and binge-shopping fall short! This striking trend is gaining more and more popularity and has already been adopted worldwide. The cherry on the top, there’s even a social media hashtag #DivorceParty in honor of this special day! Today we give you the best party ideas to make yours a memorable one!
« I am getting a divorce, and you are cordially invited! »
From birth to death, every event or transition in your life has a ceremony. Starting with baptism, first communion, fifteen, all kinds of grades, your wedding, until death has its ritual. So why, if divorce has such an impact on our lives, is it not worth celebrating? While some are deciding to end their marriage may be cause for celebration because of happiness and new beginnings, others less fortunate to surround themselves with family and friends to bid farewell to their married time may help ease the sorrows of a broken heart.
Whatever the case, the ritual’s goal is to close a stage, a cycle, a fundamental celebration to open the doors and allow new air to enter. This celebration will enable you to take a moment to cry, laugh, breathe, do whatever you want or need to do in the company of friends and family. It is a very revolutionary idea because before, people who got divorced were alone as if they were ashamed of a failure, which made the experience already difficult more negative. The party is a way to bring everything out into the open, while friends help you get through that difficult stage of life.
Does it work? Does it really ease the pain of a divorce? Will you feel better after you’ve thrown your engagement ring into the sea, or cast false spells, or dance with a clown disguised as your ex? Many questions remain unanswered, but sometimes we just need to laugh about it all, hop and nibble until we burst. And while yes, no one likes divorce-particularly those who are or are about to be, so if you’re (or know someone) in the throes of it, do yourself a giant favor and give this famous antidote to the depression of a separation a chance. So, let’s check out some crazy ideas some of the most creative ways to celebrate your divorce, in case you ever need the inspiration to make this day even more special!
