You are cordially invited to our divorce celebration

Several famous couples have gotten divorced but have continued to work together and even be friends. Many Marietta residents may wonder how Lucille Ball and Desi Arnaz, Fran Drescher and Peter Marc Jacobson, or Demi Moore and Bruce Willis are or were not only cordial with one another after their divorces, but friends. Some in the marriage and divorce professions, however, believe that it is easier to be friends with an ex as divorce becomes more acceptable.

While many Georgia couples go through a contested divorce, not all separations need to be so cantankerous. In fact, there is a growing trend amongst divorcing couples to end their marriage the same way it started -- with a party. Although some of the newly-single men and women that throw these elaborate divorce parties are celebrating the end of a long, drawn-out divorce, some soon-to-be ex-couples prefer a healing party that acknowledges a happy split.

One of the best celebrity examples of a happily divorced couple is Fran Drescher and her ex-husband. While the former star of "The Nanny" divorced her husband of 18 years, she and her husband continue to remain friends and even vacation together. But, according to Drescher, being friends was not as easy as saying "I don't." Rather, it took as much time, effort and energy to be happily divorced as it did to be happily married.

Some people are able to leave a marriage on good terms, but that does not mean that there aren't important legal protections that each spouse must obtain before finalizing a divorce settlement. Although an uncontested divorce may make it easier to decide who gets what and how child custody will work, a family law attorney is still an important player in ensuring that the divorce is done correctly.
