An estranged Ugandan couple has elicited conflicting reactions on social media as they reunite to celebrate their six-year divorce.
The pair were caught in viral images cheerfully cutting a cake with the word “happily divorced,” prompting a barrage of reactions on social media.
Immaculate Nantongo, the ex-wife, posted photos of their supper on Facebook with a sweet and encouraging remark.
“So now my divorce is final yeeeeeey after 6yrs of separation,” she added. Today I’ve chosen to commemorate the completion of a project that culminated in the birth of two gorgeous boys. I am grateful for companionship, co-parenting, and maturity. I had no idea 7 years ago that we would be sitting together and having a lunch in this location. How time cures all wounds… It wasn’t easy for me to let go of the hurt, betrayal, and choose forgiveness, but I did it, and now we’re in the best place we could be. “ I’m not here to glorify divorce; instead, I’m here to tell anyone in a similar scenario that divorce isn’t the end of the world. You can still maintain a civil relationship with your ex. Life can still be lovely, but it’s also important to remember that God is not a man.
You can still maintain a civil relationship with your ex. Life can still be lovely, but it also serves as a reminder that God is not angry with you. Yes, he despises divorce, but he adores you.
God despises divorce because of the harm it causes to people’s families, but you can choose to make the best of your circumstance while you’re going through it….
“So, for one last time, we gathered to commemorate the lives we’ve lived and the lives we’ll live in the future.
To us, and to the next chapter of my life, a happy divorce day.”
Messages of congratulations have been sent to the couple, despite the fact that many people believe they should be separated.
