"Marriage comes and goes but divorce is forever." -Nora Ephron

And thus the world is introduced to HuffPost Divorce, the newest section of web-based newspaper Huffington Post.

According to Arianna Huffington, the section was "inspired by HuffPost editor-at-large Nora Ephron, who knows a thing or two about the subject, our newest section will tackle the topic from many angles, providing insight, resources, community, and some comic relief to those impacted by what Nora, in her new book, calls the Big D. Our goal is to produce a fast, fearless, highly interactive guide to the profound changes divorce brings."

Among the articles in the new section are:

"Family Dinner After Divorce" by Laurie David, ex-wife of the famous Larry David

"Why Divorcees Make the Best Dates" by Sascha Rothchild

A story on Heidi and Spencer Pratt about why they filed for divorce (it was a scam to make more money...SURPRISE!)

"The Case for the Starter Marriage" again by Rothchild

And there's even a Divorce Aphorism of the Day (when I logged on, it was "I'm an excellent housekeeper. Every time I get divorced, I keep the house" by Zsa Zsa Gabor).

Reactions to the new section are mixed, as one would assume. The online comments about the section range from:

"I'm really happy about this section. As ubiquitous as divorce is, it certainly shouldn't be a topic of conversation that's off-limits. It's time for the negativity attached to divorce to take a hike"


"A section on Divorce and not Relationships or Family???...Let's face it, America knows how to get divorced. We need more help on keeping marriages together."
