Arianna Huffington Proudly Introduces New Section: 'HuffPost Divorce'
This is surely going to make some mouths drop wide open.
Liberal internet publisher Arianna Huffington on Monday proudly introduced a new section to her website called "HuffPost Divorce":
I've been single, I've been married, and I've been divorced. And getting divorced was the hardest of the bunch -- at least in terms of finding a way to be happily divorced (and, yes, there is such a thing!).
That's why I'm so excited about the launch of HuffPost Divorce. Inspired by HuffPost editor-at-large Nora Ephron, who knows a thing or two about the subject (see Heartburn), our newest section will tackle the topic from many angles, providing insight, resources, community, and some comic relief to those impacted by what Nora, in her new book, calls the Big D.
Yep. You read that right. An entire section talking about divorce:
Our goal is to produce a fast, fearless, highly interactive guide to the profound changes divorce brings to families, friendships, careers, and finances -- to say nothing of the physical, emotional, and spiritual well-being of those going through it. We'll bring you all the latest divorce news, plus fresh takes from our Divorce group bloggers.
So whether you are divorced, divorcing, or just curious about how others manage the complexities of divorce, check out HuffPost Divorce. Breaking up is hard to do... but reading about it isn't.

Makes you want to take two drinks and call your lawyer in the morning, doesn't it? So does recent data finding America leads the world in divorce rate at almost 5 per 1000 people.
Exit question: does a section specifically devoted to this subject increase the number of divorces by not only glamorizing the process and the outcome but also further removing what used to be a negative stigma attached to marital failure?
Or am I just hopelessly old-fashioned?
