Divorce Registries

A new trend is popping up among those who’ve been divorced: creating a divorce registry.

While some divorcés were already using Amazon wishlists, a bunch of divorce-specific platforms have popped up recently to provide a more official service. Fresh Starts Registry launched in October 2021—it allows one to build a registry, and has recommendations for products, divorce lawyers, and therapists.

Another such platform, Divorcist, is currently in the soft-launch phase and reportedly plans to release its registry feature in February. Divorcist co-founder Eliza Cussen says, “Our mission is to make divorce and separation dignified. We’re trying to elevate divorce, separation and breakups to the same status as a life event. Not a happy one, but one that deserves recognition.” (InsideHook)
