    It wouldn't feel any different from if he asked her for a divorce on any other day (imo). Obviously I'd be worried about our family breaking up.

    I apologise.

    In all seriousness though I think I'd be pretty distraught, but I don't think Valentine's Day would bare any significance.

    I got told either the day or day after of my birthday they were getting a divorce - that was unpleasant.

    Though they got back together.

    Bad things always happen around my birthday - seriously, i can think of many and its well known in the family.

    Oh I'd feel horrible, any other day and I wouldn't bat an eyelid. How could the ******* possibly leave her on Valentines day though? After all, that is the day that jesus...that jesus...impregnated the easter bunny?

    It would be rather horrible, and quite unexpected, seeing as they seem absolutely fine

    It'd be horrible because it's like rubbing salt on the wound.

    But really, the fact he's asking for a divorce would sting far more.

    I'd be pissed off... the date doesn't matter that much, but divorcing on valentines day is like rubbing it in your face, so nah. :|

    I'd be fine with it, tbh. They sleep in seperate rooms anyway, so.

    I'd give a hi five to him and wish him the best for his new found freedom. I somewhat embrace divorces, I think it's great for a person to have their freedom granted unlike many who even though hate to be in a marriage stay in it and force themselves to like it.

    I'd obviously console my mum, and convince her not to legally claim any money from him through the divorce...because I think for a man to be stripped of his earnings and hard work is complete injustice.

    Divorce is always looked down upon, because obviously it doesn't paint a rosey picture...but divorce does for a married person. what marriage does for a single person.
