A woman has gone viral on social media after she threw a party for her divorce after 17 years of marriage.
Sonia Gupta, 45, threw a colorful party with her family and friends, and celebrated the end of a lengthy divorce process which lasted for 3 years.
While describing her marriage, Sonia stated that she and her husband are not in good terms and also not a good match for themselves.
“I chose the theme to be colourful, bright and full of unicorns, as I’m a very bright colourful person.
“To me, the theme was magic, because after the last 10 years, I think I deserve that little bit of magic.”
Gupta had been married in 2003 as part of an arranged marriage in India, but that she quickly realized that she did not feel happy despite trying to make things work for a few years.
While speaking about her relationship, she said;
“We got married in India, then moved over to the UK. I got lost in the whole marriage and cultural aspects of it, and I ended up being really unhappy for years.
“I just wanted the old me back, I was quite a lively and outgoing person before my marriage, and when I got married it just all went to pop.
“When I told my family that I wanted out, there was uproar and no support for me or my mental health, but I had my friends, and my two pillars of strength, my sons Mikhal and Shay there to support my journey.
“I’ve also had help after my divorce from the Asian single parent network.”
“The divorce party was to show my friends and family, especially my parents who eventually supported my decision, that I’ve come out the other side.
“I wanted to thank them all for their endless support over the past 10 years.”
The divorce process began in 2018, but was dragged out over three taxing years.
After many laborious discussions, five appearances in court, three trials and many disagreements, the process was finalised and her marry was officially over.
The end of her marriage signifies a new beginning, and she has gained a new lease of life.
“People seem to think there’s no life after divorce, that your life is over”.
