Divorce Selfies? Well, It's Better Than Fighting

posted by Mary Booth - 

I didn't know it was a thing... but apparently, it's become one.  #DivorceSelfie, the online post that announces you've officially split-- 

Divorce is final. Think we get along better now then when we where married. #itsofficial #divorceselfie #stillfriends #timeforcoffee

For some, it's trendy.  But for others, it's all about closure- 

We went to court and got divorced today, and then went out for a beer and a selfie. Totally normal, right? Seems appropriate because nothing we've ever done is normal. I'm grateful to this guy for 25 sometimes good, sometimes not-so-good, years together. We raised each other from adolescence to adulthood and then made two beautiful children we love like crazycakes. Instead of being disappointed that our choice to be together didn't last forever, we choose to accept that sometimes good things fall irreparably apart, to be thankful for the adventures we had, to look forward to the new and exciting ways we will grow as individuals and in other relationships, and to commit to a lifelong friendship and coparenting partnership-- not just because it's good for our little ones, but because it's also good for us. KB, thanks for making this day, and so many other days, easier. You will always be my family. "Your heart and my heart are very, very old friends." (Rumi) #divorceselfie

Of course, there's always someone who takes it a step too far.  Like this guy.  Seriously??

Tacky? He takes the cake. 

Divorce selfies? Well, it's better than calling each other names and fighting it out on social media.  Still...
