While most people have been invited to at least one wedding in their lives, it is pretty rare that you are asked to be present at a divorce ceremony. However, this is a growing trend that some people are opting for during the divorce process. A divorce ceremony cannot be confused with a divorce celebration, another unique trend that has seen popularity amongst the Hollywood crowd. Whereas a divorce celebration is a festive party that allows the divorcing party to end their marriage with mirth and smiles, a divorce ceremony is more solemn. In most cases, a divorce ceremony will only involve close family members, particularly any children of the marriage. It gives both parents a chance to state that although they do not wish to remain married to one another, they are both committed to giving their children all the attention they need post-divorce.
Therapists are more frequently recommending divorce ceremonies to families that are open to the idea. During a ceremony, both parties will read their divorce vows to one another, and children may be asked to participate by standing near the parents while the vows are being read. While this is not for everyone, more and more people are considering such festivities following the end of their marriages. Have questions about the divorce process in North Carolina?
