Should a Connecticut couple actually celebrate their divorce?

As little as 40 years ago, a couple splitting up was talked about it hush-hush tones. Today, albeit sadly, divorce is pretty common and doesn't have the stigma attached to it like it once did. In fact, there are some people -- in Connecticut as well -- who actually celebrate their new-found freedom by having a divorce party. It can also be a way for them to pay homage to the marriage, no matter how long it lasted.

Ceremonies and rituals have always been a part of the human condition -- whether it has been to celebrate a beginning or an ending. So, why should divorce be any different? If the couple parted amicably and are still friends, they may even choose to host such an event together. It may be a way for the couple to express to their friends that both of them want those friendships to remain and they don't have to take sides.

Ending something as important as a marriage without a formality can be even sadder for the couple, their children, other family members and friends. Letting everyone know although they are no longer together, but that they are still family, may make the split easier to accept. Acknowledging how important the marriage was can help everyone involved to move forward, especially children.

Divorce has many ramifications and is also surrounded by many legalities. When a client needs help sorting out those legalities, he or she may wish to consult with a Connecticut attorney. A lawyer may be able to provide direction when it comes to the steps that need to be taken in a divorce process.

  • Hi Yuliana and Attorney Prince, Thank you so much for taking time out of your busy day to meet with me. I really appreciated how compassionate you were while listening to my situation, even through my tears. Thank you so much for sharing such valuable information with me. I left feeling very hopeful that when the dust settles, I’ll be ok.
  • Wendy helped guide us through a very difficult and emotional process and was really able to provide an even and fair account for both parties. It's quite evident in her expertise in this area but the way she was able to make you feel safe and secure in a very insecure time goes far beyond her legal prowess. If the two parties are really willing to cooperate and collaborate, she's there to help gain the best possible solution for all involved, especially if there are children.
  • Regardless of how committed one is to the fact that divorce may be imminent and necessary, it is truly one of the most emotional and stressful situations one can experience. It can also be daunting. Wendy has a remarkable ability to cut through the noise and help you focus on the big picture while drilling down on what is most pertinent to your particular situation., they are a formidable team who work collectively with your best interests in mind.
