A former married couple from Uganda have celebrated their divorce after six years of separation and two children.
According to IgbereTV, the woman identified as Immaculate Nantongo and her ex-husband went on a date at a restaurant to celebrate their divorce together, they cut a cake with the inscription ‘happily divorced’ on it.
The mother and entrepreneur took to her Facebook to share her joy about the successful divorce dinner she and her ex-husband had.
She wrote “So finally my divorce is final, after 6years of separation. Today I choose to celebrate the end of something that resulted in two handsome boys. I celebrate the friendship, co-parenting and maturity. 7years ago I didn’t know we would be at this place sitting together and sharing a meal. How time heals everything, deciding to let go of the hurt, betrayal and choosing to forgive wasn’t a simple thing but I did and we are in the best place we could ever be.”
She however revealed that her intention is not to encourage anyone to get divorced but said no one should see divorce as the end of life. She advises those in marital situations that required divorce to go for it.
“I am not here to glamorize divorce but to tell anyone in a similar situation, divorce is not the end of life. You can still be civil with your ex. Life can still be beautiful but also to let you know that God is not mad at you. Yes, he hates divorce but he loves you so much.
“No parent would want their child to endure or be killed in a relationship just for the sake of it. If we earthly parents want the best for our kids how about God our father?
“God hates divorce for what it does to people, it breaks up families but in the midst of your divorce, you can choose to make the most out of your situation. Co-parent better. It’s all about giving your kids the best opportunities in life. Making the best decisions for them.
“So, for one last time, we came together to celebrate the life we had and the individual lives we live.
Happy divorce day to us and to the next chapter of my life” She added.
