About Ex-Spouse Day

When is Ex-Spouse Day? This holiday is always observed on April 14

Ex-Spouse Day is in recognition of your Ex. Someone must have been kidding when they created this day, right? Could anyone actually want to recognize their Ex? Most of us want to forget them. Hard as it may be to believe, Ex-Spouse Day, an April 14 holiday, has indeed arrived. How are you going to celebrate this day? Once again, we will remind you that we do not create the days, we merely report them. So, please don’t shoot the messenger.

All too often, relationships don’t work out. About 50% of marriages in the U.S. end in divorce. Life provides us with many ex-girlfriends and ex-boyfriends. There are many ex-wives and ex-husbands. Some relationships end amicably, while others are painful and nasty endings. Most likely, we would prefer to forget them.

With a little stretch of the imagination and an open eye, you may find a few “Exes” out there who actually have good traits. After all, there was a time when you did love and care for them. There are even examples where some people get along better with their Ex after the relationship is over. Did you have children together? Then, it is important to get along for their sake.

If you value your Ex in any way, give him or her whatever appreciation and recognition you feel is appropriate today. If you can not find any redeeming trait, no one will fault you for skipping today’s celebrations altogether.

How to Participate in Ex-Spouse Day

  • For many of us, this is simply a way to forget past relationships.
  • Find ways to get along with your Ex, regardless of how the relationship ended.
