Divorce parties in Iran?

I was honestly surprised to see that divorce parties are growing in popularity in places like Iran, according to a recent BBC article.

Apparently, the trend there involves ordering black roses, and getting invitation cards to send to friends with song lyrics about not missing the ex on them, and some officials have already expressed concern  about (read: condemned) the trend of celebrating divorce (although, as you might know if you are planning a divorce party, it’s not about celebrating the end of a marriage, it’s about celebrating a brand new life and the future).

The divorce statistic is lower there, though, as the article states that nearly 20% of marriages end in divorce in Iran (whereas it’s often said that it’s closer to 50% in North America). That, combined with the officials expressing concern, and I wonder how much this trend will actually take off in that country?
