Apparently, the Huffington Post is starting a divorce blog, which is kinda interesting, and if it consistently includes stuff like this from Nora Ephron—”The premise … is that marriage is for some time but divorce is forever”—then it might actually be fun.
But I’m not sure I’m on board with Ariana Huffington’s motivation for starting the blog:
Huffington says part of her inspiration for the section was the feedback she got after writing a blog post on vacationing with her ex-husband. In the story, she talked about co-parenting after divorce and focusing on what’s best for the kids, which in this case was taking a family vacation with just that — the whole family. The kids really benefited from seeing mom and dad getting along and being part of the same family trip.
Now, JP’s mother and I are getting along pretty well these days, and that’s a good thing, for everyone. But I’m not taking her on vacation any time soon.
Sorry, JP. There’s a reason (or perhaps a million of them) why I got divorced.
