Weddings are events that we’re all fairly familiar with by now – you show up with a too-expensive gift in a too-expensive outfit, but you get a good Instagram and drink just enough free alcohol to almost make the event worth it. Now, apparently, there’s another formal event we have to ask off work for, because people are starting to throw divorce parties. 2016, this is where we are now.
As if making us sit through one event wasn’t bad enough, Jeff Becerra and Michelle Mahoney have introduced an entirely new level of awful to our social obligations. After 24 years of marriage, the couple decided to split amicably and threw a “divorce party” to celebrate their split. Their 18- and 20-year-old daughters helped plan the event, which featured booze, mugs, and handouts, all decked out with images of the former couple. Yep, personalized mini champagne bottles were distributed to help the couple untie the knot, and the former husband gifted his former wife a toaster as well.
What happened to good, old-fashioned hate between former lovers that didn’t include registering for the missing half of your possessions again at Target? Personally, I’d rather drink all of the booze alone, rip up some old pictures, and set up my Tinder profile, but to each their own, I suppose. As long as remaining civil enough with your exes to throw a party doesn’t become the social norm, feel free to break up however you see fit, and if you’d like to return that $30 Amazon gift card I mailed you the first time, that’d be cool too. .
