Got 1 min? Recently divorced couple goes viral after celebrating together in Mérida cantina

What do you do after you finalize your divorce in Mexico? Hit up the cantina with your ex-wife or ex-husband and have a few beers, of course.

At least that’s what one young man and woman did in Mérida, Yucatán, on Thursday.

Judging by the smile on the face of the man, it was more a matter of celebrating their newfound freedom than drowning their sorrows. Or maybe the recently-separated couple were just dying for a beer amid the intense heat that has plagued Mérida this week.

El Cardenal, a cantina in the Santiago neighborhood of the historic center of the Yucatán capital, brought the news of the divorcees’ drinking to the world’s attention with a post to its Facebook page.

“CONGRATULATIONS! Today we welcomed at the bar Fernando and Eli, a lovely couple who were celebrating their DIVORCE,” El Cardenal said.

The cantina published two photos in the post: one of the couple, although Eli’s face is obscured by a shushing face emoji, and one in which Fernando is showing off the former couple’s divorce certificate.

As of Friday afternoon, the post had been shared almost 150 times and attracted 99 comments.

One Facebook user suggested the couple would “reconcile” after having a few drinks, while another praised them for ending their marriage in a peaceful way and “without problems.”

At least two people wanted to know what El Cardenal’s “divorce promo” was.

“With the purchase of a divorce, take home a beautiful mention on social media,” responded another Facebook user.
