A new trend is catching on among recent divorcees, as these individuals are holding break-up parties to celebrate the end of their marriage.
While some people may find this practice odd, many recent divorcees note that the celebration serves as a way to acknowledge the past but move on to the new life that will await post-divorce.
Divorce party is similar to wedding party in some way, with guests indulging in extravagant eating and drinking. However, on a wedding the father hands his daughter off to the groom, but on a divorce party the father take his daughter back from the son-in-law. Some divorcing couples also returned the wedding gifts on the divorce party.
