Honeymoon in Reverse

Category : Divorce Ritual, Ex-Spouse

Everybody knows that the cliche honeymoon is always on tap right after you say “I do.”  You get your spf sunscreen and hop on a plane with your spouse to Hawaii or Acapulco for some fun in the sun to recoop after the whole wedding production.  Yes, the wedding that took you a year to plan and was over inwhat felt like, about ten minutes.  Now it’s time to figure out the next phase of your lives as a couple.

Fast forward, five years later and you unfortunately don’t have much in common any longer with your spouse.  You spend more time with your girlfriends for a good time and he spends more time with his secretary for a good time.  You file for divorce, go through the whole process and a year later come out the other side with a decree and your freedom.  What do you do next?  You go on a your “divorce honeymoon!” 

You had a honeymoon to mark your marriage, so it would only seem fitting to have a divorce honeymoon when it’s over.  Pick a place that you have always wanted to go, but haven’t been able to.  You can also just get away for the weekend if you want.  Get a room at the local beach or the local log cabin depending on the time of year.  The bottom line is that you are  spending some quality time with the most important person in your life right now – you! A divorce honeymoon is essential when hitting the restart button and getting back into the swing of things.  There are plenty of singles cruises around that offer many opportunities with other liberated divorcee’s who stayed strong and didn’t walk the plank. 

The key to the divorce honeymoon is that you are getting out there again. It’s a swift kick  for a divorcee to start living life with a new outlook (and maybe a new boyfriend)!
