Chick Lit Files For Divorce

With Eat, Pray, Love coming to the big screen this August, divorce porn (also known as little-did-I-know lit) may finally replace the single-and-hating-it chick-lit genre that Bridget Jones's Diary made so popular 10 years ago.

An Elle article blames — what else? — the economy. But considering divorce rates dip during a recession (to the point where a London law firm sold divorce vouchers last Christmas), it probably has more to do with the uptick of divorce tales published after Eat, Pray, Love's success than an economic downturn.

Maybe it's cyclical? The single women who devoured Bridget Jones books in 1998 are now a decade into marriage, weary — and wary — of monogamy. Whether they're getting, wanting, or fearing a divorce, reading about other another woman's life-affirming d-day is, well, porn.

But as Elle points out, Elizabeth Gilbert and three of her divorce disciples chose to give love a second chance and enter relationships. Sounds like the love-begins-at-40 genre is next!
