Divorce Party?


America loves divorce and parties, so why not have divorce parties? It only costs ~$100/head, and they will throw in a free divorce party with the purchase of a bachelor party.

If just discussing divorce in public seemed taboo a few years ago, the growing trend of divorce celebrations is helping lessen the stigma surrounding the end of marriage. “Yes, it’s sad and it’s painful, but it’s not failure,” says Christine Gallagher, the owner of Los Angeles event company The Divorce Party Planner and the author of a book by the same name. “It’s part of life, and yet it’s the only major event for which we have no ritual. “A celebration communicates that divorce is OK — life-affirming, even.” — CNN.com
