#DivorceSelfies: A New Ouch Trend On The Social Media

When we think of a divorce, the first few things that come to mind probably include fighting, cursing, bitterness, and basically everything else we would see in a movie.

However, the new trend is spreading among modern (un-coupled) couples as some social media users are proving that breaking up doesn’t always have to be a sad occasion. Using the hashtags #DivorceSelfies and #DivorceSelfie, these newly-divorced couples are putting an unexpectedly uplifting spin on separation. It is changing the way people view ending marriages.

Legally finalising a divorce is not exactly something people often care to photograph, but these former flames are all smiles in their divorce selfies.

Here are some of the best awkward, amazing, and kinda pure #DivorceSelfies:


More excited than out our wedding day. #heresyoursign

We went to court and got divorced today, and then went out for a beer and a
selfie. Totally normal, right? Seems appropriate because nothing we've ever done is normal. I'm grateful to this guy for 25 sometimes good, sometimes not-so-good, years together. We raised each other from adolescence to adulthood and then made two beautiful children we love like crazycakes. Instead of being disappointed that our choice to be together didn't last forever, we choose to accept that sometimes good things fall irreparably apart, to be thankful for the adventures we had, to look forward to the new and exciting ways we will grow as individuals and in other relationships, and to commit to a lifelong friendship and coparenting partnership– not just because it's good for our little ones, but because it's also good for us. KB, thanks for making this day, and so many other days, easier. You will always be my family. "Your heart and my heart are very, very old friends." (Rumi) #divorceselfie
