Yesterday, I attended my first Divorce Party. Not sure what to expect, I tested the idea out on a couple of people and this concept is definitly still new and quite controversial. Although after looking it up on the net, it seems to be the newest type of party to gain popularity. I even found a book entitled “How to Throw a Divorce Party”.
Anyway back to the subject at hand… My best friend (the divorcee who I might add absolutely deserved that party) invited 10 of her best friends to a trendy restaurant, brought her cute little pink paper stamped by the Government and wore her best dress. The topic of the night as you may guess was “how shitty men can be”. I probably shouldn’t be making this info public but come on you guys… Girls talk about that stuff whether they are at a party or not. Plus you guys aren’t much better 😉
I was the only Single/ Not married / Not divorced person there so I had a lot of stories and advice to learn from. What astounds me is that these were such lovely and interesting women, yet some were divorced twice or just getting divorced or separated and trying everything to get the divorce. Some were after 10 years and some after 20 years of marriage. I don’t know the exact story for all of these women but I couldn’t imagine the feeling of leaving your lifelong companion after 20 years.
