Divorce Discrimination



Today, lets take the seriousness out of divorce shall we? Only those who are divorced will understand the necessity for this. All others, even singles who have never been married (or divorced) will fall into the old stereotypical  thought pattern – Divorce isn’t funny…these people should see what a mess they’ve made of their lives…they’re irresponsible…they’re promiscuous…they’re selfish…they run away from their responsibilities…they don’t have staying power ( I don’t mean this in a sexual way although that phrase has now come to mean a sort of Viagra induced sexual marathon capacity without the Viagra – so take your mind out of the gutter and think – endurance…there you go again with your overly sexual thoughts…well I mean the capacity to tolerate a situation). Yes, non divorced people are VERY judgmental about those who are divorced. And sometimes divorced people are judgmental about other divorced people – the thought process being “It was different in my case… ” Anyway – for all of you who like to laugh – please read this Social Media causes divorce


Those of you who are judgmental can get your kicks tutting and shaking your heads about people’s lack of commitment. Those of you who are divorced or undergoing the process and need humor can simply laugh.


I have another lovely link to Post Split Rituals which talks about seven bizarre Divorce customs from various parts of the world. This comes with a warning for those much married, smug and contented, seven life time’s together type couples – you will not enjoy these and will feel even more smug and contented and seven lifetimes together satisfied when you see these. So if you can stick with that sentiment and simply enjoy your own situation go ahead and read. If you’re going to use it to show how depraved Divorced people are then go flush yourself down the toilet. Don’t knock what you don’t understand. Don’t make presumptions that people divorce to get a better sex life. Nothing could be further from the truth. The fantasy of the dark mysterious divorced woman ( or man) always on the make, stealing your spouse from you, upto all kinds of nefarious activities could not be further from the truth.


So you smug married types, stay away from this blog and keep your comments to yourself because they betray a precious lack of understanding of the situation. And a huge amount of insensitivity. I’m utterly tired of divorce discrimination.
