A touching story has been making its rounds on the internet.
US teenager Morgan Lynn twitted: “My parents after 19 years of being married, were going through a divorce & it got finalized today, & my dad sent my mom her favorite flowers.” Lynn explained that her father used to send her mother flowers when she had a bad day. Her father had told her that their wedding song was Kenny Chesney’s “You Had Me From Hello”. As a finale, Lynn’s father sent Chesney’s “Always Gonna Be You” to her mother. Many internet users noted that there were left heartbroken by the post.

As a divorce lawyer, I have many clients who part on an acrimonious note. Some of them have been married for many years, like Lynn’s parents. Many forgot how they were once so in love. Hurt and hatred sometimes bury loving memories.
Is it possible to part amicably? How about staying as friends after the divorce?
Lynn’s parents’ story is inspiring. For parents who part amicably, they teach their children a lesson about forgiveness and moving on.
After all, divorced couples were at some point in their lives, in love.
