Divorce Selfies/Martin Rosenfeld, JD

Posted on September 7, 2019


I just read about divorced couples taking a smiling selfie picture right after their divorce has become finalized. Though this has been around for a few years, I just caught wind of it last week. My reaction is that of Tevye in a Fiddler on the Roof with some modification: “Though it is no great shame to be divorced, it is no great honor either”. Certain events are better done in privacy and with some anonymity. I suggest divorce is one of those things. Amicable divorce is a positive development but no pictures, please.
