I don't think I would have one. I am a firm believer in marriage is forever and would be devastated that my marriage is over.
I do understand there are reasons for divorce, but people are too quick to run and get one.
A divorce with children involved is no reason to celebrate. I did not have one.
When my lawyer called me to tell me my divorce was final, I bought a bottle of wine to celebrate, that was my "divorce party, number of guests: 1" :-)
My soon to be ex husband was my only boyfriend and even though I am devestated that my marriage is over, I still feel "free".
I bought myself a divorce ring
I had one. My ex and I had been seperated for awhile by the time we divorced and I thought I was doing okay by the time the actual divorce came about so I let my friends throw one. Was very surprised by how sad I got when the actual divorce took place and party came around. It was okay but I wouldn't tell others " Oh, you should have one"
I honestly would have loved to have had one but many of my friends were sad that I had gotten a divorce so I didn't do it. They understood but they are also friends with my ex and were sad about it. My SIL and I celebrated in our own little way with lunch together.
