Canadian couple takes divorce selfie, photo goes viral

CALGARY (KRON) — A Canadian couple’s divorce selfie is going viral.

Shannon and Chris Neuman, of Calgary, snapped a picture last Thursday and posted it to Facebook with a caption that reads in part, “We have respectfully, thoughtfully and honorably ended our marriage in a way that will allow us to go forward as parenting partners for our children.”

The post has been shared more than 27,000 times and has inspired other couples to snap divorce selfies.

Critics said they are glorifying, or even celebrating, divorce. But the Neuman’s said the response has been 99 percent positive.
