I was reading CNN.com and saw this article, i cant believe this im actually chuckling at the thought. http://www.destinationdivorces.com/
“Whether you and your spouse prefer the beach, the mountains, the sun, or the slopes, the destination for your divorce is limited only by your imagination. Your destination can be anywhere you choose, or we can choose for you. The idea is to remove yourself from the everyday stresses and pressures of daily life so that you can focus solely on your divorce for three straight days. Ideally, the process should occur at a location where there are amenities available to the parties that can help them calm down when emotions begin to run high. So, for example, if one party reaches a point where he or she needs a break, that party can play golf, or get a massage, or swim laps, or work out in the gym; whatever is needed to be able to settle down and come back to the table with a clear head. Regardless of the location, however, remember: you are not taking a vacation with your spouse. You are selecting a relaxed setting to help keep emotions in check during a very difficult, scary, and inherently emotional proces“

To be honest, I think this is too awesome! Totally setting up shop once I’m done the bar!

I actually think this is a neat idea. It’s showing that even though your love relationship didn’t quite work out, doesn’t mean that you all can’t still have some sort of relationship. Also, like the thing says, it’ll help keep emotions in check during a super stressful time.

Having been through divorce, I find this idea kind of appalling. Not like it’s morally reprehensible or anything but…I don’t know how to put it into words. It’s great that you have a nice relaxing place to focus on the process and that the divorcing couple can still be friendly together, but for me it was such a sad and serious time. Our marriage was in its death throes, and the idea of going through this process in some beautiful location with lots of amenities would have felt so wrong. Plus whatever location we chose would have been ruined for the both of us forever. (We already have this since we went on a last ditch effort to help bridge the emotional gap kind of vacation to Punta Cana. Now I can’t see the words without getting a little ache in my tummy.) I also understand that’s just me, so to each his/her own.

I think it’s a great idea. If my parents would have put their differences aside, gone somwehere, dealt with it instead of dragging it on for months it would have been a lot less expensive and a lot less hard on us as kids, family etc.

Haha, kinda brilliant! I’ve never gone through or had anyone close to me, go through divorce, though.
