Divorced Couple Become Successful Business Partners

Ken and Wanda Bass are a divorced couple who have launched a successful business creating greeting cards for ex-spouses.

Ken and Wanda Bass are one divorced couple worth paying attention to.

They’ve become successful business partners long after their marriage ended.

They did it by creating something they found they needed themselves—

Greeting cards exes can give to each other.

These two have been in each other’s lives a long time.

They became a couple in 2002, we’re married 15 years and had two sons together before they divorced.

Even though their marriage didn’t work out, they respected each other as the co-parent of their sons.

So what kind of card to you give your ex on Mother’s or Father’s Day?


You don’t find that at your local grocery store.

(I know that feeling.)

So, they started creating the cards themselves.

The Daily News reports that’s how XCards was born.

The company’s tagline is, “Not together, but never forgotten.”

How can you run a company with someone you couldn’t be married to?

Ken and Wanda shared their story with WBLS’ Jeff Foxx.

Ken and Wanda have thought of all sorts of situations that can get awkward after a couple divorces.

Beyond Mother’s Day and Father’s Day, there are also cards from son and daughter-in-law’s looking to send something nice to their ex-partner’s parents. They even cover birthdays, Christmas as well as Mother’s Day and Father’s Day.

The recurring message is about gratitude.

Talk about a life not planned.

I get that.

I write about my own life not planned in my book,

“Hope Possible: A Network News Anchor’s Thoughts On Losing Her Job, Finding Love, A New Career, And My Dog, Always My Dog.”
