Today, more than 50% of all marriages end in divorce.
This means that many couples and their children and extended families can be affected as a result.
Performing a Divorce ritual to acknowledge the end of a relationship can be an important part of a healing process.
Whether it is the breakup of a long love affair, a special friendship or the dissolution of the legal bonds of marriage this ceremony is intended to resolve issues, acknowledge good and bad from the relationship, tie up loose ends, thank a support network and greatly assist with the ‘moving on’ process.
Ideally both partners should be present for the ceremony but a successful outcome is still possible with only one person. Personally chosen guests can enhance a divorce ceremony.
Human needs have to be fulfilled both in times of happiness and times of grief or unresolved sadness.
