Brazilian model, Cris Galêra, married herself just three months ago in a lavish ceremony, now plans to file for divorce. Despite planning to be her own soulmate for the rest of her life, the model has met someone special and wants to end her marriage.

Galêra's exchanged vows with herself, known as sologamy, in a church in September, as pedestrians walked by wondering if her groom had stood her up. When the truth came out, she married herself; she made headlines all over the world.

Galêra's Wedding Was A Gift To Herself

The model said she was afraid to be alone for the rest of her life. Instead of letting that fear paralyze her, she married herself as a declaration of her love for herself. But the happiness she felt being married to herself faded when she met someone special, Daily Mail reported.

"I reached a point where I matured, I realized that I am a strong and determined woman. I was always afraid of being alone, but I realized that I needed to learn to feel good about myself. When that happened, I decided to celebrate it," the Brazilian model said.

After a string of bad relationships, she had the wedding of her dreams and declared to the world she loves herself enough to get married. She hoped her act of sologamy would inspire her nearly 200,000 Instagram followers to prioritize self-love and demand respect in their own relationships.

Galêra Found True Love

The model plans to make her divorce official when she travels to London in a few weeks for her honeymoon and pose in a playboy photoshoot. Even though her marriage didn't last, she enjoyed the experience. She said it helped her learn what behaviors not to accept in a relationship, and her new mindset prepared her to find true love.

News 18 points out Galêra isn't the first woman to marry herself, as 40-year-old Laura Mesi from Italy married herself in 2018. She made a pact if she didn't find love by 40, she'd enter sologamy. Another woman from Sydney did something very similar. She broke off her engagement with her partner after discovering he was cheating on her to marry herself.
