This holiday encourages those who need a little incentive to finally get their lives back and to stop allowing themselves to be treated poorly.

History of Dump Your Significant Jerk Day
The origins of this holiday are unknown, however it is likely that whoever invented it was fed up with their own relationship and wanted to encourage others to take the necessary step toward happiness. Life is short and there are so many fish in the sea as the saying goes. Why waste it in a relationship that makes you feel bad when you aren’t treated with love and respect? It is much better to remain single than it is to waste your precious years with someone who is a jerk to you. How will you be able to find Mr. or Mrs. Right if you’re busy with Mr. or Mrs. Wrong? Celebrate this holiday by putting an end to your unhappy relationship!
