The world of smartphones has brought new terms like ‘selfies’ to the forefront. While celebrities helped to make them famous, they have spread to just about everyone who has some sort of social media presence. The latest in this line are being referred to as “divorce selfies.” They are what they sound like: a newly divorced couple snapping a selfie of themselves right after officially getting divorced. In most divorce selfies ex-couples seem to be smiling and happy. Are they happy because they have decided to break up a marriage? In a way, they are positive because they feel they have taken the healthy and mature route to ending a partnership that perhaps lasted for many years. A common theme among the divorce selfies is an acknowledgement that a relationship that was great before is perhaps not so great now, and they have taken the steps to make them both happier.
