Lady Celebrates Divorce By Throwing Lavish £500 (N235,831) Party For New Lover


Emma Barua, a 29-year old makeup artist from Brighton East Sussex, has celebrated her divorce by throwing a lavish £500 party for 50 guests, including her new lover.

Barua had been with her former boyfriend for two years when they decided to get married to help him move from Australia to the UK so they could be together long-term in July 2017, Mirror reports.

Unfortunately, after making the move, the newlyweds’ marriage broke down 16 months after their fairytale £2,000 wedding which led to the couple filing for divorce in November 2018.

When the divorce was finalized, Barua celebrated with a bash for friends and family.

She wore a long red velvet dress and then changed into a short red number which was, according to her, a way of saying ‘I am embracing my freedom and feeling sexy and single again’.

“I felt happier on that night of the party than I did on my wedding day because it was just about me, not about me joining my life with someone else, it was all about my future and what it holds.

“People said I should get a pinata with my ex’s face on it but I said I didn’t want to do that because it’s not about him, it was about me.

Barua, who has since entered a relationship with new beau Angus, 38, said: “I wasn’t sad and I didn’t want people to be sad for me because I saw it as a celebration.”

She also stated that her marriage broke down because the pair lost communication and trust but admitted the split was mutual.

Now Emma claims she can’t see herself getting married again in the near future but hasn’t ruled down walking down another aisle for good.
