That's what I thought as well! :lol: :lol3:

Let's just hope they don't write 'Dating Divorcees' at the bottom of the screen during the actual season! :tup:

Prophet: says:

"divorced woman," 1813, from Fr. divorcée, from noun use of fem. pp. of divorcer (see divorce). The male equivalent is divorcé.

"The race will be a great test for our relationship..."

 :res: Is this the #80684590680456894586098 dating couple who don't watch the amazing race and see how couples who actually want to go on the race to test their r/s eventually broke up or became enemies?

Like seriously? :res: How many times do we need to hear this already.


It depends on which dictionary you use. I found the same spellings as you AFTER this:

Divorcee, refers to a person whose marriage has ended in divorce, a legal dissolution of marriage before death by either spouse. The feminine form is "divorcée", and the masculine "divorcé"

Its clear and obvious in French where this word originated, but in English it is pretty muddy. In English my interpretation is that "divorcee" is valid for either gender.

Another couple on TAR to see what it does to their relationship. FAIL. That never seems to work.
