April 14th Was National Ex-Spouse Day - It's Not Too Late Commemorate It.

Some of you may have missed it, but yesterday was National Ex-Spouse Day. Falling exactly two months after Valentine's Day and one day before Tax Day, the holiday was created in 1987 by the Reverend Ronald Coleman, who hoped this holiday would become a day of forgiveness and healing.

His premise was that couples who were going through or had gone through a difficult divorce needed to let go of all the anger, hurt, and bitterness to effectively go on with their lives. In my recent article in Your Tango magazine, attached below, I discuss a number of ways to celebrate this holiday, both constructive and otherwise. Please feel free in your comments to discuss whether and how you celebrated this day.
