A US woman has thrown herself a celebratory party after struggling for 15 years to dissolve her marriage.
Catherine Navarro, who is 34 years old, finally got divorced after her husband declined her request to get separated.
According to Dailymail, the beauty rushed into saying ‘I do’ in 2005 when she was just 20 years old, but her marriage slowly fell through the cracks.
While the pair had attended a friend’s wedding, the lady’s husband suggested that they too needed to get married.
The whole while, Catherine thought the guy was pulling her l and when she realised he was serious, she started planning for her big day.
The pair got married at City Hall New York, but later Catherine learnt she and her partner were not being honest with each other.
Years after their rushed wedding, Catherine thought the best thing to do was for each of them to go their separate ways.
When she grew weary of the man she had vowed to spend eternity with, Catherine tried to convince the chap that divorce was the way to go.
Her spouse, however, disagreed and he decided to disappear, forcing her to prove to the courts that she had searched for Marc but could not trace his whereabouts.
For years, she tried to search for the man in vain until the court decided to grant Catherine a divorce in the husband’s absence on March 18, 2019.
She then invited around 30 friends and family members to a soiree that included a cake-cutting ceremony to celebrate her much-awaited freedom.
