Part of the problem is the legal turmoil people have to go through to legally divorce. Many times it drags out for 3 or even 4 years in some states like Maryland that it becomes this big hurdle to overcome. Of course people are going to feel like its a victory afterwards.
Many businesses are begin in to see the opportunities in this new market and are capitalizing on it. Gentlemen’s clubs, caterers, party organizers, and of course lawyers are all targeting the newly divorced.
A divorcee Alexis Flanagan who is a therapist had this to say about getting divorced.
” My divorce was the most self-loving thing that I had done for a long time. I could re-evaluate what was important in my life. Just two years into my marriage I had realized it was not what I wanted. But I was stuck in my toxic marriage for ten years, of which nearly four was going though the legal process which is particularly complicated in the State of Maryland. I felt liberated – of course I was going to celebrate! I detached myself from the church which had kept me in an unhealthy relationship and I guess the divorce led me indirectly to the career I’m now in as a holistic health therapist, which encourages people to take their own decisions.”
Below are some divorce cakes from people that really wanted their ex’s to know just how they felt.
