Turn the end of your marriage into a celebration!
If you are getting divorced, you may want to plan a party to celebrate. After all, your girlfriends deserve to have some fun after the enormous amount of time and advice they've invested. Besides, you deserve to have a little fun, too.
The details of your party such as who to invite, where and when to have it and what to serve will largely depend on the type of divorce you're enduring. For instance, if you're going to have a quick divorce, a solo party should take place in a sunny, foreign locale. Of course there will be logistics to consider, like travel, hotel and ground transportation.
If you're going to stay a few days and work on your tan, you'll need to pack a bag. Be sure to remember the sunscreen, a trashy romance novel and the necessary paperwork ... and don't forget, it's best to travel light and leave your rings at home, especially if your ex-husband had great taste in jewelry.
In addition, you may want to invite a couple of girlfriends along for the trip, making the festivities a bit more celebratory. How Do I Know I'm Ready To Start Dating After A Divorce?
Citing "irreconcilable differences" is just a nice way of saying "Get out of my life before I strangle you!" Both people realize that the marriage has run its course and they are staying together out of habit ... or the fear of having to get naked in front of someone new.
It's inevitable that one of them will scream (at the top of her lungs, like a banshee) "Get out of my life before I strangle you!" Once this phrase has been uttered, the person being evicted finally comes to his senses, the possessions are divided and the papers are signed. This will call for a larger party and a generous supply of cocktails because yelling like a banshee will make you very thirsty.
