If you ask most any child of divorce about their parents’ break up it conjures up sad, mournful memories. For the 4 and 5 year old children of Jack White & Karen Elson? Their recollection of the time will be completely different than most. Their memories will be of a great big fun party.
White Stripe star Jack White his model/singer wife Karen Elson are celebrating their 6th wedding anniversary with a party to pay homage to their years together and their upcoming divorce. There are quite a few couples in the midst of a break up that are not just too busy dealing with the day to day of their divorce to actually plan a party that is if they can even stand to be in the same room with each other. But Jack White and Karen Elson…they are attempting to make this transition as fun and fearless as possible, especially for the sake of their children.
But having a divorce party isn’t a new idea. There are special divorce cakes (think tiered confections with one less bride or groom), divorce party invites and even a book called the Divorce Party Planner that includes gift ideas, party games, food and drink ideas and of course divorce party etiquette.
Would you ever throw a divorce party in order to make the whole experience a but more fun for the kids?
