Happy Divorce Day? Should there be a national day to commemorate divorce?

Someone raised this question today about having a Divorce Day, just like, say, Thanksgiving Day, Christmas Day, Martin Luther King Day, Mother’ Day, Father’s Day….and I thought, you know what? That’s not a bad idea! It wouldn’t so much be a celebration of people’s marriages cracking up, as it would be a celebration of, you know what? I tried it, been there done that, it was successful for how ever long it was, we divorced, and I’m still here. I’m happy, life goes on, I didn’t die, I didn’t perish, it’s all good, the kids are okay, we’ve moved on. 
And then you would have all these other people who similarly went through the fire and came out on the other side, surviving. They would be there to pat each other on the back, show support, and celebrate.
Yea. It would be a sort of camaraderie/support thing that would have survival at its theme. It’s sort of like, the human spirit triumphs over even divorce.
Isn’t that a great idea? I think it is. Matter of fact, it shouldn’t just be a national day. It should be international. An International Divorce Day. A collective moment of silence for all that was and all that will be.
What do you think? Jeeze. That would be genius. That would be bleeping genius. And this would totally take away any remaining stigma about divorce. (I likewise support a national Marriage Day too so don’t send any nasty emails about how I am glorifying divorce because I’ve already established that I would prefer if no one ever had to get divorced. But life is what it is and some divorces are necessary and I just think a national day recognizing that divorce happens and it’s okay, wouldn’t be a terrible idea.)
