Here's the thread that's going to turn me into a Promise Keeper.


ha ha ...



Srsly thought this one had been composited.

Better luck next time, Patricia Arquette.



Finally, here's the one that put me on this search:

I mean, I get having amicable breakups - had one myself! - but SELFIES? THIS IS A THING!?

Sad lol @ the happy dude with pissed off ex in sunnies to his right, tho.

pplains gonna be trolling funeral selfies before long

nice cage (m bison), Tuesday, 6 June 2017 03:50 (six years ago) link

btw this is a good find, its just...unsettling to me. is this something unique to social media? like that oneupmanship that goes with trying to show everyone your life is together and shit?

nice cage (m bison), Tuesday, 6 June 2017 03:51 (six years ago) link

yeah i mean what else would it be?

call all destroyer, Tuesday, 6 June 2017 04:00 (six years ago) link

Funeral selfies is totally a thing too btw

The final picture in the original post is one of the most amazing things I've ever seen

PJD PDJ DPJ (DJP), Tuesday, 6 June 2017 16:22 (six years ago) link

That one was brutal in revealing just everything about that moment.

But this one, oh ffs.


pplains, Tuesday, 6 June 2017 16:26 (six years ago) link

Okay it's not like I am a fan of the word "selfie" to begin with but how the hell can you call a picture a "selfie" if the person taking it isn't in it?

PJD PDJ DPJ (DJP), Tuesday, 6 June 2017 16:29 (six years ago) link

god the only way that last photo could be better is if the second woman is both his new GF and her longtime best friend

nomar, Tuesday, 6 June 2017 16:31 (six years ago) link

this is such a weird genre and they really run the gamut from hilarious to sad, mostly just weird. agreed with m bison that there the performative nature of selfies is really amplified by this subject matter, too.

Karl Malone, Tuesday, 6 June 2017 16:35 (six years ago) link

There's a thing called #trashthedress, but sometimes it's just "a style of wedding photography that contrasts elegant clothing with an environment in which it is out of place," as Wikipedia says, or it's all about divorce photoshoots.

Saying that, it's hard to tell which version is which sometimes. Which brings us to this:


Is she a carefree bride, revealing her quirky taste for adventure by revealing her Chucks? Or is she a former bride who now wishes to hang herself?

pplains, Tuesday, 6 June 2017 16:36 (six years ago) link

like the "i married beneath me" pic

holy wtf at that, didn't realize she was living in a 16th century feudal state

Karl Malone, Tuesday, 6 June 2017 16:37 (six years ago) link




Yes, every single divorce photoshoot I've found so far has featured white females. I'll keep you updated should this change.

pplains, Tuesday, 6 June 2017 16:40 (six years ago) link


the signal i get from that is "i used to be adventurous (symbolized by my chucks) but now i'm trapped in this terrible life so now i'm hanging myself, i hope everyone i know sees this and it goes viral and everyone understands how you ruined me.", but that may be a dark interpretation on my end

Karl Malone, Tuesday, 6 June 2017 16:41 (six years ago) link

I can't help but think in these #trashthedress ones, Hey, you could get at least $500 for that on eBay!

pplains, Tuesday, 6 June 2017 16:41 (six years ago) link

For the dress, not the Chucks.

pplains, Tuesday, 6 June 2017 16:41 (six years ago) link

I like the sad angel one, actually

PJD PDJ DPJ (DJP), Tuesday, 6 June 2017 16:42 (six years ago) link

ok HUGE difference between the "we're so happy!" ones and the grim ones. hanging?!
i am glad the happy people are so happy about their divorce
the other ones seem mostly in poor taste/nagl/dramatically unbecoming in multiple ways

weird woman in a bar (La Lechera), Tuesday, 6 June 2017 16:45 (six years ago) link

I'm assuming these people were 24 hour a day performing advertisements against marriage prior to their being momentary advertisements against divorce tbf

lol @ #squats

nomar, Tuesday, 6 June 2017 16:47 (six years ago) link

the posed shots taken by professional photographers are way more depressing than the selfies (in general)

"Why are you wearing that stupid bunny suit?"

simply epic

goole, Tuesday, 6 June 2017 17:33 (six years ago) link

I made a mistake above. Apparently, Patricia Arquette is a divorce attorney and/or specialist. She likes to take photos with her clients and tag them with #divorceselfie.


Realized this while following hockmyrock around through this instagram rabbit hole.

pplains, Tuesday, 6 June 2017 18:50 (six years ago) link


PJD PDJ DPJ (DJP), Tuesday, 6 June 2017 18:51 (six years ago) link

pplains you're very kind

goole, Wednesday, 7 June 2017 03:41 (six years ago) link

Thank you. Kind of what?

pplains, Wednesday, 7 June 2017 03:49 (six years ago) link

OK the ones done by professional photographers like miss angel wings is making my skin crawl. No one wants to admire your glorified pain, lady.

Stoop Crone (Trayce), Wednesday, 7 June 2017 04:26 (six years ago) link

what's fucked up is imagining whose ideas the settings are - the divorced people or the photographers

like who brought up the idea of taking some pictures in the house that has fallen apart, and how did that conversation go down

Karl Malone, Wednesday, 7 June 2017 04:27 (six years ago) link

Also wtf is going on in that donnie darko set? It looks like the girl doesnt want to break up and is forced into those pics@?

Stoop Crone (Trayce), Wednesday, 7 June 2017 04:28 (six years ago) link

i'm imagining it has to be the divorced person's idea, because hopefully none of these photographers have participated in multiple divorce selfie shoots (or have they(?!?!)) so they're probably just muddling through

Karl Malone, Wednesday, 7 June 2017 04:28 (six years ago) link

My very christian cousin in law does excellent pro photography and Im sure has done weddings... I wonder what she'd say/do if she was asked to do this shit haha.

Stoop Crone (Trayce), Wednesday, 7 June 2017 05:08 (six years ago) link

I've had two mostly amicable breakups (pre-"selfie" terminology) where we took a last photo together. The first half-dozen or so of these are deceptively fine, and I have no problem with the general concept. After that it gets horrible and that's why pplains is so amazing.

Haha no. We had a hellish year. But no divorce. Just a omfg-husband-wants-divorce-fu tattoo. 😂 So now a reminder of that year but still married.

No way I'd have a divorce selfie. Jfc.

i can't help but think that these photoshoots are the result of wildly misinterpreted suggestions from therapists

Karl Malone, Sunday, 7 April 2019 16:08 (four years ago) link

wow, there's a whole article about it on reputable source of news https://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/article-6870417/Woman-internet-sensation-divorce-photo-shoot.html

Karl Malone, Sunday, 7 April 2019 16:09 (four years ago) link

the caption to one photo reads "Marie said she got the idea for the photo shoot after her divorce from Quinton Eaton, her husband of 13 years, finally became official this month"

... the daily mail

"In one photo, Marie smiles wide as she holds up her heels. The bottom of one reads 'est 2006' while the other reads 'Done 2019'."

uh, it reads "done 2019" in a comic sans-knockoff font that is crisp and clear compared to the blurry text seen elsewhere on the shoe. this strongly suggests that the photo has been microsoft painted.

"Marie said her favorite photo in the series is one that shows her throwing her head back in laughter. She's holding a wine glass that reads 'Finally divorced, boy bye'."

piss on her ex's face, for letting drugs ruin everything. douse it in wine and then burn it down. *punches the frame and then licks up blood off the third knuckle*
