Divorce party - Why not? I love this idea!

A divorce party is a ceremony marking the end of a marriage. It can involve only one or both members of the couple. Now this kind of celebrations is well established in the US and is becoming very popular in the UK.

When to organise? Before or after civil divorce.

Who participates? The couple, friends, family and children. 



If you do not believe me, then order "The Divorce Party Handbook" through Amazon.


Purposes of a Divorce Party

  • Marking of a new live section
  • Remembrance of a nice time together during the marriage
  • Forgiveness each other for a troubling time shortly before and during the divorce
  • Gratitude to those who had helped to get through a divorce process
  • Healing the rifts among family and friends caused during divorce
  • Showing to the children that parents split in peace.



Divorcees can make their divorce party as an echo of their wedding day. This celebration often includes a divorce cake, wedding ring coffins, pretty dress, just-divorced banners, and divorce rings shaped like a broken circle.

It has become common to serve up cocktails with names like "Hit the Road, Jack" and "I Will Survive" and to sing songs from the wedding day.

I'm wishing you never to get divorced!

Let your marriage to be happy and long-standing!

    Guten Morgen, von solchen Partys habe ich schon gehört. Ich finde die Idee nicht schlecht, zumal man sich ja dann vom Ballast befreit. Ich wünsche Dir einen schönen Tag. Liebe Grüße Jana

    Depending on the couple, this could actually be a good idea...and a nice way to start new life in a healthy way. Divorce is hard so whatever people need to make it easier...I say let them do it.

    I like the idea of a divorce party. When I left my last boyfriend I had a freedom party and it was pretty awesome. I think they are a good way to mark the close of a chapter and a start of a new chapter. That cake is pretty cool

    When I first saw this article I thought it would be about one spouse throwing a party to celebrate freedom from the other. This is completely different from what I expected and actually a nice idea.

    I like the idea of ending things on a good term rather than bad. Hopefully I never have to throw one though =P

    Ganz ehrlich, ich finde diese Idee auch gar nicht schlecht! Schließlich beginnt meiner Scheidung ja wieder ein ganz neuer Lebensabschnitt und man hat etwas zu Ende gebracht, was so nicht mehr gepasst hat.
    Liebe Grüße, Rena

    Hallo meine Liebe;)

    Eine Scheidungsparty finde ich richtig cool. Manchmal ist es besser getrennte Wege zu gehen und warum sollte man das nicht auch noch ausgiebig feiern?

    Ich folge deinem schönen Blog nun sehr gerne;)

    Liebe Grüße aus Stuttgart

    I can see how this might be a good idea, but I think it depends on the individuals.

    Very rarely do marriages end in happy divorces. I can't think of anything I'd have less liked to do after more divorce than have a party. If anything, a divorce party, should be more like a funeral than anything else. Personally, I don't like the idea at all, but each to his or her own, I guess. Divorce is typically marked by acrimony and a lot of people get hurt, not just the couple themselves. I felt sad and empty when my divorce came through.
