Relationship Ceremonies ($335)
most same-sex committed relationships last much longer
than the average marriage, not all do. The end of a
committed same sex relationship is just as painful and
difficult as a divorce.
A Pride Ceremonies® End of Relationship Ceremony
recognises that the end of a relationship, regardless of
who made the choice. The ceremony can be a very positive
way to honour everything that was good in the
relationship, to recognise that it was not a mistake even
though things have now changed, and pave the way for both
parties to move forward on their now-separate paths.
The ceremony is specifically designed to intentionally
transform the experience into a stepping stone. It assists
in disidentification as a partner, declares your intention
to reweave your life into something new and spotlights
your personal path forward by means of a formal ceremony
in which you close the door on the old, and, with
support of family and friends, acknowledge and celebrate
your new status.
It is therefore as much a ceremony of release as it is an
acknowledgement of separation. It helps cleanse past
negativity, declares your independence, and promotes
acceptance. It does so by marking a significant change:
release from deep commitment to the former partner.
Single-partner ceremonies can be healing, and these
constitute over half of the end of relationship ceremonies
held. However, the ideal ceremony is one where both
parties are present. Not only is there great potential for
positive closure in this latter form, it can also be
extremely helpful in calming fears and assuaging guilt of
the children of the relationship as it can help them
understand that while their parents have agreed not to
live together, they are not being abandoned, that they are
loved by both parents and that the breakdown of the
relationship is not their fault.
celebrants who offer divorce, separation and end of
relationships ceremonies have a very superficial
understanding of the psychological processes involved.
More than any other type of ceremony it is essential that
you choose a celebrant who is skilled as a celebrant,
committed to ensuring that your ceremony is healing and
positive, and who has a deep understanding of the
psychological harm that can be done by an inadequate
ceremony and by the process of developing the ceremony,
I hold a degree in Psychology, and in depth experience of
the needs of separating couples together with high-levels
skills and experience as a celebrant.
