PARENTS REACT TO VIRAL TRENDS - DIVORCE SELFIES?!
This Couple's Viral Divorce Selfie Shows That Splitting Up Isn't Always That Bad
When a Canadian couple found themselves anticipating divorce, they chose to behave in a different way than many others facing the prospect of breaking up. They decided to think about the good times they had, and the good times that were coming.
Shannon and Chris Neuman, who share children together, officially ended their marriage. And instead of treating the day like, you know, the worst day of their lives, they decided to celebrate instead—with a happy smiling duo selfie they hashtagged #divorceselfie, which has since gone completely viral.
The photo of the beaming ex-couple was originally posted by Shannon on Facebook, where it was shared over 27,000 times.
In the caption, Shannon explained:
Here's Chris Neuman and I yesterday after filing for divorce! But we're smiling?! Yep, we're kooky like that. Are we smiling because the partner we chose for forever turned out not to be the forever partner we needed? Of course not. We're smiling because we have done something extraordinary (we think anyway!) We have respectfully, thoughtfully and honorably ended our marriage in a way that will allow us to go forward as parenting partners for our children, the perfect reason that this always WAS meant to be, so they will never have to choose. They'll never have to wonder which side of the auditorium to run to after their Christmas concert or spring play, because we'll be sitting together. They won't have to struggle with their own wedding planning because we'll be sitting on the same side of the aisle - THEIR side.
