Woman who Married Self Divorces after Finding her Soulmate
A 62-year-old woman from Vanderbijlpark, south of Joburg, who married herself on Saturday 9 November 2019 has officially divorced herself after she found a new lover who is willing to marry her.
According to details sourced by Bright Kenyan news, the Instagram model is now seeking a divorce with the hope of marrying her new boyfriend.
The woman who was identified as Galera revealed that she decided to marry after being exhausted and frustrated by men many times.
She went on to say that she had chosen to accept loneliness and that the groom's absence on her wedding day was not unusual.
Galera danced gleefully after exchanging her marriage vows, holding a bouquet of flowers in her hand.
Cases of women marrying themselves have been on teh surge as a similar case took place in 2019 September as Laura Mesi, an Italian lady, married herself in September 2019 after a 12-year relationship ended in 2015. Laura warned her friends and family that if she didn't find her true partner by the time she turned 40, she would marry herself, which she did.
She walked down the aisle in a lovely white gown and had 70 relatives and friends join her on her special day, which she planned herself.
Additionally, UK Independent reported in 2019 that Linda Doktar, an Australian life coach, married herself on Valentine's Day in 2017 on a beach with three of her closest friends.
Linda was dressed in a tie-dye blue and purple gown and read her vows in front of a mirror. Emmajane Love, one of her closest friends, had inspired her to make a pledge to herself in Bali a few months ago.
