“When life gives you lemons, make lemon cake” was the sentiment behind the lemon cake that was served at a divorce party. Just in case you are wondering exactly what a divorce party is, you are in luck because you are about to find out. Many people who are going through a divorce have discovered that divorcing doesn’t necessarily have to be laced with hate and conflict.
Some people are actually remaining friends and business partners after they divorce. In some cases, the former spouses are opting to celebrate the end of their marital union and the beginning of their new relationship with a party.
For couples who are in business together, these parties often serve as a reminder that both parties are still part of the business. It might remind workers that the couple can still work together and plan to do just that.
These parties are an interesting phenomenon that is growing in popularity. They come complete with cake and festivities. Some people are calling them freedom parties.
As the centerpiece of the party, the cakes at these festivities are often very interesting. Some of the cakes feature scenes reflective of the end of the marriage. Others are black or upside down.
Besides signaling the end of the divorce, these parties are also showing people that the attitude toward divorces is also changing. In the past, getting a divorce was shameful and often meant going into a period of mourning. Those days are gone.
Divorce is just a fact of life for some people now. Nobody who is going through this life change should feel ashamed. Instead, the energy you have should be focused on ensuring you get a divorce settlement that gives you the best foundation possible for your new life. Knowing Florida laws regarding divorce settlements might help you to ensure you get the best settlement possible.
