Summary
A day created to encourage forgiveness and healing after the difficulty of a breakup.

This day was created in 1987 by the Reverend Ronald Coleman.

The clergyman 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. Reverend Coleman also believed a little humour was acceptable, and in the holiday’s inaugural year, he gave out buttons to people that read “I’m Okay — You’re History.”

Though you may not want to see them ever again, after your relationship ends, maintaining good relations with an ex-spouse can have several benefits, including:

  • Co-parenting: If you have children together, it is essential to keep good relations with your ex-spouse to ensure that you can co-parent effectively. Good communication and a positive relationship can help you work together to make decisions about your children's upbringing, such as schooling, healthcare, and activities.

  • Reduced conflict: Maintaining good relations with your ex-spouse can help reduce conflict and tension between you, which can be beneficial for your emotional well-being and that of your children.

  • Financial benefits: Divorce can be a costly process, and maintaining a good relationship with your ex-spouse can help minimize the financial burden of litigation and legal fees. You may also be able to work together to split assets and debts amicably, which can save time and money.

  • Social support: Maintaining a good relationship with your ex-spouse can provide you with social support, especially during challenging times. You can still share important life events and milestones, and having a supportive ex-spouse can make it easier to navigate through difficult times.

  • Closure: Finally, maintaining good relations with your ex-spouse can provide a sense of closure and help you move on from the divorce. It can also be beneficial for your mental and emotional health and help you build a new chapter in your life.
