Kvetch of the Day: Marital Status Questions.
Why should "divorced' be an option? 'Divorced' is not a state of being. One gets a divorce, one is going through a divorce, and yes, in certain contexts (e.g. gossip), one is divorced. However, for the sake of classification on a marketing questionnaire, I don't think it's relevant. I am 'single' or 'in a relationship'. I have been divorced.
What's next? Branding us with 'D's on our foreheads? A scarlet 'D' stitched to our shirtsleeves? Well, I never.
I had a very productive day on Facebook today. I reconnected with a high school boyfriend (who has twins now and seems to have grown up waaaay to much for my taste) and my freshman year college roommate at Sarah Lawrence. I think if she didn't live on the other side of the country we'd be friends.
