"I don't know of anyone who willingly walks away from their marriage if they still want to make it work. But the truth is Leslie and I were two different people who wanted different things. Yes, we loved each other... I became the person that he wanted me to be and lost myself in the process."
This had a ripple effect on her as she even once contemplated committing suicide.
Sonia has been raising her four children as a single mother.
Following the divorce, Sonia rose up and got back on her feet.
