Ex Spouse Day is observed annually on April 14th. This day recognizes one’s ex spouse.
The question has been asked as to why would one want to celebrate their Ex?? We are not sure there is a good 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 actually get along better after a divorce than they did during the marriage. Unfortunately, all divorces do not turn out that friendly and can the experience can be very 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. After a divorce or separation it is now all about parenting the children. It is all about taking the high road in your interaction with your ex spouse.
National Ex Spouse Day is meant to be a day of reflection and to encourage ex spouses to release anger or resentment.
National Ex Spouse Day was created in 1987 by Reverend Ronald Coleman of Kansas City, Mo.
