I personally believe that no matter how bad the marriage has turned out, there's always something about it to be celebrated. The maturity of two people of accepting the fact and embracing their own shadows and fear of separating is actually liberating. Divorce could not only mean of an ending but also a new beginning.

There's nothing to celebrate in divorce. Marriage should be for life. Divorce is a failure to endure certain things in marriage or an unwillingness to work out problems or something physically or emotionally intolerable so it's nothing to celebrate.

People like you are the reason why these things should be celebrated instead of turning into nasty, shameful occasions where people are forced to choose sides and animosity runs rampant for years.

Divorce is similar to a death in ways. It's a transition where there is pain and grieving. Some people also have ceremonies to celebrate/honor the transition of loved ones leaving this earth. You grieve, you celebrate, and you learn to Live with it...you can still have a peaceful happy life afterward. This is not something for everyone, and that's okay.

Absolutely absurd. If they are this copacetic together that they can have a divorce ceremony like this harmoniously than they need to stay together and work on things. Marriage promises mean something. And there is nothing that can't be fixed when two people are working for it.

That's one of the saddest things I've ever seen and the weirdos who actually attended is just as bad. That woman seem to be hurting so much.

Sometimes you can love a person and still want more for them. Perhaps YOU are not part of that more and it's okay.

My ex husband and I married for love and discovered that actually, as we grew up, we grew to want different lives for ourselves. I wanted to settle and become secure in my life, he wanted to travel and explore the world. So, he does and I did and we remain friends.. There is absolutely no harm in that. A relationship ending does not need to mean the end of the world. It can be a beautiful part of living your best lives. No need for this kind of ceremony.

So you didn't discuss what you wanted before you said your vows?
