Is Divorce Ever Something To Celebrate?

Happily Divorced
Deion Sanders is finally divorced from his ex wife Pilar Sanders (wearing black) and free to move on with his new boo Tracey Edmonds (wearing pink) and he’s happy about it.  So happy that he took to Twitter to publicly share his feelings.


Then his new woman Tracey Edmonds chimed in


And he followed up by taking what looks like a subtle dig at Pilar…


Victim vs Villain
I guess Pilar didn’t love, honor and respect him? Poor Deion! He’s the victim and she’s the villain.  It was all good when he stood before God and chose to marry her and make her the mother of his children now all of a sudden she’s the enemy! Everything about this is ugly starting with entering a new relationship while you’re still married, taking the kids away from their mother then gloating about the fact that you have full custody while she’s left with a boat load of legal fees.  What is there to be happy about? Deion professes to be a Christian and he often posts scripture on Twitter.  I wonder if he read the scripture in Malachi 2:16 that says, “God hates divorce” and the one in Proverbs 24:17-18 that says, “Do not rejoice when your enemy falls, and let not your heart be glad when he stumbles, lest the Lord see it and be displeased, and turn away his anger from him.”

Keep His Money
Deion has made it very clear via social media that he is happy he doesn’t have to pay child support.  He gets to keep all of his money and move on with Tracey who walked in Pilar’s shoes not too long ago.  Back in 2005,  Tracey filed for divorce from her then husband Babyface.  She walked away with joint custody of their two sons and an alleged $70M settlement meanwhile Pilar gets no custody and an alleged $1M.  How can Tracey feel good about this? When I asked my Twitter peeps if divorce is ever something to celebrate one of my followers said, “If you’re in a horrible marriage, say an abusive one, then I’d say its definitely a reason to celebrate.”

Something to think about…

What say you? Is divorce something to celebrate? Yes…No…Maybe? If you’re divorced, did you celebrate? How did you feel?

He’s probably happy because someone was trying to take something they didn’t earn from him and they were denied. He put his health on the line for year after year, was smart enough to have a prenup, and is now free to live his life and commit everything to someone he can be happy with.

Good for him and anyone that finds happiness 🙂
