Divorce Selfies Are Now A Thing!
When you think of divorce, the first few things that come to mind probably include fighting, cursing, bitterness, and basically everything else you would see in a movie. A new trend is spreading among modern (un-coupled) couples, however, and it just might change the way people view ending marriages. The Internet, meet the ‘divorce selfie.’
Legally finalizing a divorce is not exactly something people often care to photograph, but these former flames are all smiles in their ‘D-Day’ selfies, with some even including heartfelt messages commemorating the time spent with their spouses. The divorce selfie went seriously viral a woman from Calgary, Canada shared a happy photo with her ex-husband in front of the Court House where they signed their papers, and explained why in a moving Facebook post. “We have respectfully, thoughtfully and honorably ended our marriage in a way that will allow us to go forward as parenting partners for our children,” she included in the anecdote.
Though some people aren’t really sure how to feel about it, others are lauding the divorce selfie as a positive and mature take on an otherwise difficult and somber event, Check out just some of the selfies below and oh! What do you think of the #divorceselfie?
Officially divorced this afternoon. Here's our #DivorceSelfie to commemorate the occasion. We also went to lunch afterwards. We couldn't make our marriage work, but there's no reason to fight. We don't hate each other (we're past that). #ItIsWhatItIs and this marriage was beyond saving. We still have a son to raise, and we will respect and support/help each other in the meantime. Every divorce should be like this one.
