Lets Toast To Freedom And Failure: Divorces Parties On A Rise, Some Newly Divorcees Spend Up To $25 000 Celebrating End Of Nuptials

Some people despise their spouses so much that when the papers have been signed and finalized they throw big parties to celebrate being single again.

 Yep this is what this world has come to gone are the days when people were ashamed or hurt when their marriages fail today they just throw big parties to celebrate failed marriages.

Richard O'Malley, a New York-area event planner, told the Associated Press that he organized one break-up blowout that cost a woman about $25,000, while dessert chef, Lisa Stevens from Florida, bakes one divorce cake every month now - a steady rise from previous years.

Mr O'Malley says he refers to such events as 'freedom fests', because divorcees aren't celebrating the end of the marriage but the new path they've chosen in life.

At the $25,000 divorce party he organized two years ago - the first of many to come - the wedding was re-enacted in reverse order.

For example, the bridesmaid who caught the woman's bouquet eight years prior threw one back to her.

 

And they really go all out with these “freedom feasts’,

And her father walked down a makeshift aisle by himself to 'take her back, instead of give her away.'

As a finishing touch, wedding gifts were photographed, placed in silver frames and given to gifters in attendance.

'This is something you don't have to regret, like the wedding,' Mr O'Malley said. 'It's something without any shame.'

 The father taking her back from the isle, don’t even get me started on that.
