So A firend of mine got her divorice finalized to day. I know said but in all fairness is is for the best. But I was amazed to find out What her ex did. Wait for it… He brought 5 friends with him(split a van taxi) and then went bar hopping from the court house. They were actually out side smiling next to the court sign.
My reaction was that her Ex is a a complete tool along with his friends. I am all for celebrating a end to somthing bad but to bring it to the court house????

That sounds really tasteless on his part and needlessly hurtful to your friend (the Ex). I can kind of understand being glad to be out of a bad marriage, but openly celebrating at the courthouse and rubbing your Ex’s face in it is going too far.

Well, sounds like she made the right choice.

I’d probably throw myself a freedom party (if we didn’t have kids), but not from the courthouse! Damn!

That is just sad, and as @msfahrenheit: said, in very poor taste.

I would probably celebrate too, but probably in a quieter, less obvious way (ie not bar hopping right from the courthouse). Going through a divorce is hard… It’s a very long and painful process… I’d be happy it’s over too. What your friend’s ex did was tasteless and needlessly nasty.

See this is what I thought. I mean they for sure both wanted a divorce but to do that from the court house is crazy.
My second thought was how did he convince 5 guys to take off work on a monday to go bar hopping cause he was getting a divorce!

Wow, sounds like a responsible dude. Now it’s her time to celebrate, unlike him, with class.

I think a divorce is a thing to mourn not a thing to celebrate. Even if there are extremely valid reasons, I still find it sad and depressing. To me it’s like having a party after someone you don’t like dies.

If it was an absolutely terrible marriage, I can definitely see waning to celebrate as soon as something was finalized. I hate to say what he did was ok, since everyone is obviously so against it, but if they were both happy, I don’t see what the big deal is. Now she just knows she made a great choice, and she can celebrate too.

It was a really great thing when I got out of my last marriage. He was abusive & I have a MUCH better life now, but I would never celebrate a divorce.

I also don’t see what the big deal is. Everyone handles things differently, and at the end of day no one really knows what went on behind closed doors. Maybe he felt completely trapped, maybe he was wildly unhappy… whatever it was, he felt like “celebrating”… which in fact was probably just him drowning his sorrows the best way he knew how.
With his friends in tow I’d imagine it was mostly just for show. He’ll mourn later.

i think no one really knows what really goes on in a marriage so if he felt the need to get the bros and have a party then thats his feelings and his entitled to them
