What Should You Do With a Couples Website If You Break Up?

Another one bites the dust: Bachelorette Deanna Pappas and her fiancé Jesse Csincsak added to the long, long list of couples who broke up after The Bachelor and The Bachelorette (note to future contestants: It's not going to work out. I have a feeling.)

Here's the awkward tech part: They still have a website devoted to them as a couple, deannaandjesse.com. They're not the first couple to start a blog or website about their life together, and they're definitely not the first to break up.

So what do you do with the website? You can't divide it like a record collection, or burn it in a cathartic love token bonfire. It stays on the Internet, mocking you with past posts about how stoked you were to take a hike together last Spring.

I mean, you can take it down as an act of electronic breaking up (like changing your Facebook status back to single), or you could ignore it and not deal with it, letting it slip into Internet heaven, although it will still be there. Or you could take it, change the domain name to something clever like "myexsucks.com" and blog your breakup or recovery. Not highly recommended, but who's judging?

Has anyone gone through this? What would you do?

this reminds me of those cheesey mirror heart keychains (fromHigh School)where when you broke up, you would break it in half, and when you made up, glued it back together. Maybe I am just showing my age though. :P

I've never even heard of this, and it is not something I would not condone. I hate when people devote their entire AIM/MYSPACE profile to being in a relationship you sure don't need a website. good god

I feel the same about these as I do about tattooing someones name on yourself. It's a kiss of death, don't do it!

What a shocker. You shouldn't do this at all, it's tacky and no one cares.
