Immaculate was quick to note that her sentiments do not in any way intend to glamorize divorce but inspire others in a similar situation to embrace the goings-on.

Not the end of life

Having experienced it firsthand, she reiterated that divorce is not the end of life and that exes can still remain civil.

"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," she posited.

According to her, no parent would be happy knowing that their child is enduring a bad relationship, which by extension means that even God understands when people go separate ways.

Co-parenting

Immaculate opines that God hates divorce for what it does to people, as it breaks up families.

However, she believes that in the midst of a divorce one can choose to make the most out of the situation, most notably co-parenting.

"It's all about giving your kids the best opportunities in life. Making the best decisions for them," she posed.

It is against this backdrop the one-time lovebirds met for one last time to celebrate the life they had and the individual lives they now live.

She summed everything as her "Happy divorce day" and tossed it to the next chapter of her life.

Signed the dotted lines

In March this year, another lady named Ego Oyibo, Twitter handle @Ojornelu, went public to appreciate the high court for its role in dissolving her marriage.

"Signed the dotted lines today. Happily Divorced!" She tweeted.

Most netizens concluded that the wording of her caption coupled with the fact that she saw the need to share the news in that manner could have been an indication that she had been in a toxic marriage.
