|“My divorce party brought much needed closure to a horrible time in my life. It helped me turn the corner and start living again.”
“After my divorce, I was bad-tempered and slightly crazy for months. My divorce party was cathartic. I finally let go of all the anger, sadness and regret. It marked the end of a difficult chaotic time.”
“My husband ran off with his high school sweetheart, leaving me shattered. My sister threw me a divorce party and invited lots of single men. I found out there is life after divorce.”
“After I finally left my violent husband, my friends threw me a party in a restaurant to celebrate. I felt happy and relieved that the nightmare was over.”
“The highlight of my divorce party was burning my ex’s hunting trophies. It was primitive and extreme, but it shook me out of my depression and helped me move on.”
“My divorce was long and painful. After two years of lawyer hell, I got the divorce decree, placed it in the center of my mantelpiece, and threw a blowout party for all the friends who’d stood by me.”
“The Divorce Party Planner is a fun read and is packed with practical advice. I recommend it as the perfect gift for newly divorced friends.”
