    I was not, but my SO was. He went. He said it was weird, but everyone seemed really happy. (it was for the ex-wife, and she had been a victim of domestic abuse by her ex-hub)

    Recently, he went to a cookout for another divorcing couple. (they are still living together, currently, even though it has been a while) The ex-wife brought her boyfriend to the cookout, which was a b-day party for her. This made things really awkward for all of their mutual friends, who were present. The ex-hubby left shortly.

    Strange things these days...

    but I'm not going to lie, I've told all my friends that if SO and I break up, I am throwing a HUGE party, since it would be my first time being single since I was 20! [​IMG] Coming up on 27 now... [​IMG] It would feel like a divorce party in many respects... we've known each other for 9 years!

    thats funny that you ask. we have a soap opera situation where i work

    kim was married to geano
    bob was married to courtney
    angies was married to rob
    rob and bob are best friends
    kim is now engaged to bob
    courtney is now engaged to rob and
    angie is engaged to james.

    its crazy, the point is rob and courtney had a divorce party for rob and angies divorce and angie and james are having a divorce party for rob and angies divorce all within 2 weeks of one another

    i have never been to one, but if that is what makes them happy... i personally think it is kind of sad.

    When my girlfriend got divorced she was very depressed...so...I threw her a divorce party. I took us and two of our other friends to Las Vegas to party. We did the spa, fancy dinners, caught a show...she was happy in the end, which made me happy.

    I threw myself a divorce party and it was a lot of fun. I made a cake and put just the bride on top. I got presents! It never occurred to me I''d get presents!

    My mom had a divorce party and I was really proud of her. It was more of a celebration of her moving on with her life and getting rid of the scumbag known as my father. It was actually funny because so many people came out with the truth of how they hated my dad all those years. It celebrated her strength and was a really happy occasion.

    I don't know anyone who would think that was a fun idea, so the answer is no.

    Maybe I'm just a stuffed shirt, but I don't think the demise of what was supposed to be 'forever' and "let no man put asunder" is a big joke, so "Woo-Hoo! Let's party!"

    Gosh, I'm a drag. [​IMG]

    That would be a party throwing occasion for sure. I make exception for those removing themselves from destructive relationships. You must have felt such relief when you were able to ''kick him to the curb''.

    I think like alot of other things, it depends on the nature of it.
    I haven''t been invited to one, but when I was younger I bartended for one - it was the guy''s party with
    all his mates, and they were just being obnoxious and the recently divorced guy was cracking onto all the women
    (incl. me, urgh), so I guess my initial impression of this was pretty negative![​IMG]

    In cases like Linda, I can completely see where it has its place

    Oh yeah! I threw myself a divorce party last year. My friends came over, we had pizza, rearranged my furniture [​IMG] It was awesome and a much needed distraction!
    But no, I''ve never been to other people''s divorce party.

    Not a divorce party, but after a friend broke up with his crazy vegetarian girlfriend (the crazy and vegetarian being unrelated traits), he threw a big ole' meat party! It was pretty fun.

    But even though his ex rubbed me the wrong way a few times, I later ran into her and she was still pretty confused as to why her boyfriend of 1.5 yrs dumped her out of the blue. Made me feel sad. Even if she's a little odd and hard to get along with, she didn't deserve to be dumped with no explanation and then have her dumping partied over by all her ex-boyfriend's friends that she'd hung out with for the last year plus. Would have been different if she'd behaved badly (cheating, abuse) versus just being a person with sometimes poor social skills possibly in need of some counseling.

    Never been invited to one ,and not sure I would want to go to one if it was a marriage that ended because of the two people "just couldn''t get along" after getting married or just couldn''t work things out. Or just got bored of each other.

    However I would absolutely go to one if it were a situation where the person had been emotionally/physically abused and finally got out of the situation. That''s a reason to celebrate.

    T-Gal, I think you would have been only 2 years old then. HA, but I love the idea that you would have partied with me. Thank you.
