NATIONAL EX-SPOUSE DAY
National Ex-Spouse Day is observed annually on April 14th. This day recognizes one’s ex-spouse. The question has been asked why would one want to celebrate their Ex? We are not sure there is an answer to that question.
For a wide variety of reasons, sometimes marriages just do not work out. Recent statistics show that the divorce rate for first marriages is at 50 percent. Some people find that they get along better after a divorce than they did during the marriage. Unfortunately, all divorces do not turn out that friendly and the experience can be painful and traumatic. Regardless if it is a friendly separation or not, there needs to be a way to manage the situation when children are involved.
