Spouse Got The House great products for divorced friends! {review}

It's sad but true that so many marriages end in divorce nowadays. People make mistakes. People change. A partner may no longer fill your needs. "Til death do us part" doesn't mean what it used to mean. Now it just means til the death of our marriage parts us.

I've been married (and divorced) twice so I have personal experience with how traumatic the break-up can be. Most likely each of us knows someone who has been through divorce, sometimes nasty, sometimes amicable, but always stressful.

That's why I was delighted to find an online shop called Spouse Got The House that specializes in gifts and novelties that help ease the transition and add humor to a very "down" situation.

As their website says:

Unique Products and Gifts
for Divorce Survivors.

We don’t think divorce is a taboo topic. Our branded products help dispel the negative stigma of divorce by starting conversations. They symbolize acceptance and encourage new beginnings. Perfect for divorce parties, as thoughtful gifts or even for yourself. Can our products change someone’s life? Just maybe.

Now that's an attitude I like!

The products at Spouse Got The House are designed to break the taboo of talking about divorce, in the belief that encouraging conversation about divorce helps the healing process. There is a growing trend of divorce parties and celebrations, and Spouse Got The House products fit right in.

Take a look at some of the goodies they offer:

Women's t-shirt only $20.00

3-pack of Koozies only $8.00

Tote bag only $15.00

16 oz. coffee mug only $10.00

And wouldn't this terrific pink tool kit make a great divorce party gift at only $35.00!
Spouse Got The House is the brainchild of a husband and wife team who were also each divorced from previous marriages and felt a special bond because of their shared experiences. They believe that using their branded products helps open the door for conversation about a once-taboo subject, thereby opening the door for healing and putting things into perspective.

I got to try some of their branded products for myself and was instantly impressed with the quality. I took some pictures, but my camera hasn't been making the best photos lately so I'll also show the product from their website (which is a heck of a lot clearer!).

First, this wonderful pink cap would look terrific this summer whenever you need some sun protection! 100% garment-washed cotton twill with tuck-away leather back strap with antiqued brass buckle and grommet - only $20.00

I love this double-wick candle in "Island Breeze" scent. Only $16.00 for a 10 oz. spa-quality soy candle!

This 16 oz. Lavender Bath Soak will help soothe away divorce stress. Only $12.00!

And I really LOVE this key ring! At only $10.00 it makes a great gift!

This is just a sample of the great products you'll find at Spouse Got The House. I hope you'll take a look and bookmark them for whenever you need a gift for a divorce party or a newly-divorced friend or family member. Or even for yourself!

I love this idea! There is something probably healing in being able to laugh, if even a little, over such a painful time. I love that the company is owned by a husband and wife team that know the pain of divorce and the power of healing. Thanks. Great to find you on voiceBoks, I'm now happily following!
