I can understand why some people are excited about getting divorce. Maybe they have been separated for years and finally got the chance to make it official. Or, as a couple, you have decided to go your separate ways for whatever reasons. There’s nothing wrong with posting a selfie of two people divorcing, its just odd that you want to be linked to that person forever on the internet.
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
