Former White Stripes singer Jack White and his wife, Karen Elson, are more mature than you.

The two are getting a divorce. But there'll be no “there's a tear in my beer, 'cause I'm cryin' for you, dear,” country classic to come out of the split, because they are throwing a party tonight in Nashville to celebrate.

From a joint statement:

We remain dear and trusted friends and co-parents to our wonderful children Scarlett and Henry Lee. We feel so fortunate for the time we have shared and the time we will continue to spend both separately and together watching our children grow. In honor of that time shared, we are throwing a divorce party.

The invite specifies the party is for “close personal friends and family so please no plus ones or dead beats.” Good thing it's not in Hollywood.

Here's the invitation:
