People using divorce lawyers in Stockport may be interested to learn of a new trend sweeping the nation - the divorce party.
This involves men or women heading out to celebrate the end of an old life and the start of a new one with friends and family - and there are even party planners you can hire to help you come up with the perfect way to say goodbye to your old relationship, according to the Daily Mirror.
Christine Gallagher, author of The Divorce Party Planner, organises break-up and divorce parties from her base in LA, with one client even paying £160,000 to hold a particularly lavish event.
"The parties are mainly healing events, an opportunity to vent emotion," she says. "Some 75 per cent of parties are thrown by women while men are more likely to have a few beers or organise a trip to Las Vegas with some of their friends."
Another trend for couples splitting up is to take a divorce selfie. A Canadian couple recently filed for divorce at a courthouse in Calgary and took a photograph to commemorate the moment. Their reason for looking happy? Because they decided it was better for the children to break up amicably, thoughtfully and responsibly in such a way that would mean they could co-parent together so their youngsters would never have to choose between the two of them.
