Are New York residents showing off with divorce selfies?

Each divorcing New York resident looks at the ending of his or her marriage in a different way. Some people may see it as the much-needed end of an era and are ready to move on, and other parties may find it to be a much more emotionally distressing event. However, it seems that a considerable number of people are falling into the former category as divorce selfies are taking off.

It was recently reported that a new trend when it comes to ending a marriage is taking a selfie, the term for a self-portrait photograph. Apparently, couples are choosing to stand together one more time in order to pose for a photo to commemorate their divorces. Some pictures show parties holding their finalization papers, and others simply express genuine sentiment over a bittersweet moment.

Some individuals have even indicated that their divorce day was a long time coming. One couple captioned a photo, stating that they had been separated for six years before becoming officially divorced. The same photo also indicated that the pair now get along better than while they were married. For some, taking a selfie seems to be the perfect way to close this particular chapter of their lives. 

Whether individuals hope to commemorate the day of their divorce with a picture or feel the need to mourn the end of the relationship, the overall process can be challenging. Anyone going through proceedings to dissolve their marriage may find it beneficial to prepare and work toward the best outcomes possible. Interested New York residents may wish gain useful counsel from legal professionals who could help them through the process.
