    I actually feel really sad that anyone would want that in their signature.  I can see being proud of leaving an abusive situation or something like that, but to advertise it to people that don't know your situation?

    I would never put it in my signature, but for the record. I am "proud" that I made the decision to leave my first marriage. Proud because I stood up for myself and realized I was in a situation that was eating away at me mentally and emotionally, and I no longer knew who I was. Even when my former MIL asked me if I thought Jesus/God wanted me to divorce, I told her yes, because I didn't think He would want me to live in misery. Even when the ex told me I was going to go to hell because I broke the vows I made before God and our families, I told him that was my problem, not his.

    I tried for 3 1/2 years to make it work because I DIDN'T want to be a divorcee - I didn't want to fail.  But, in the end, there were two of us failing at that relationship, and I needed to save myself.

    Stupid, stupid badge. I have to think it was made to make fun of someone.

    ITA Missy. The badge bothers me because it seems like you should label/define yourself based on previous relationships.

    FWIW, I still ended up feeling like a failure for quite some time, after the initial euphoria of being rid of the douchebag.  And, I still often feel like a failure for not realizing he was a douche in the first place.

    I understand the satire, I just don't find it funny. Is the woman with the 'divorcee' badge divorced? Not a good first impression, IMO.

    Why is it not a good first impression to let people know you're divorced? Why is it any different from being a "budget bride" or "summer bride"?

    The point of these satirical badges is to make fun of the pointlessness of the badges in the first place. Nobody cares that you're getting married in the summer any more than they care about whether you're divorced or not.

    And yes, that badge was specifically requested by a divorced lady. With no kids, not that it's any of your business anyway.

    FWIW, I don't think anybody with the "foreclosed!" badge actually foreclosed. I'm not actually expecting octuplets either, in case you were wondering.

    I'm wondering how those badges are any different really than the ones we did with the silly bride badges?  I found them humorous, in the sarcastic commentary on society way.
  • Options
    Because no one here made a sarcastic badge? Hmmm?

    There really was a gold digging wife?  What about the shotgun wedding ones.

    Yeah.  The nest/bump are awful.  For doing what P&E did.

  • Options
    Actually I did compare it to the P&E ones. I just thought it was odd. And I dont care whoTF is divoced, and of course your divorce is none of my business, but youre sure trying to make it.

    Again, it was fine here then?  And you think that the person who called themselves a gold digging wife really was that AND proud of it?

    For the record, "Gold Digging Wife" is more offensive that being divorced.  Seriously.  I think it's more telling that you judge someone harshly for being divorced.

    It's certainly nothing to be ashamed of.

    As opposed to labeling/defining yourself based on your current relationship?

    When seen in proximity with the other badges, you still don't get that it's meant as a commentary on the Nest's lame "serious" badges?

    ETA: Maybe it would be clearer if Knot signtature formatting worked the same as Nest formatting. Regardless. I am a divorced lady who has that badge in my signature, along with some others, including one that says "No Skittles for Poor People." You could surmise that I don't think poor people deserve skittles, and that I think being divorced is awesome. Or, it could be an attempt at humor. You might not think either are funny, and that's totes fine.
