Hendrika Agatha Warbie's husband had left for Connecticut, USA

Hendrika Agatha Warbie was born on 18 September 1896 in Rotterdam, Holland, as the second daughter of Johannes Warbie (1864-1918) and Agatha Pieternella van der Toorn (1876-1945). Her parents had been married on 19 October 1892 in Rotterdam when her mother was just 16 years old. Their first daughter was born on 12 February 1894 and named Johanna Wilhelmina. Agatha Pieternella gave birth to 11 children, but most of them died in infancy. A son named Leonardus Gijsbertus Warbie (1900-1928) and a younger daughter named Agatha Warbie (1903-1956) both survived infancy, too. 

Hendrika Agatha's oldest sister, Johanna Wilhelmina, was married in 1917. Their father, Johannes Warbie, died in Rotterdam on 21 December 1918.
Hendrika Agatha Warbie was married on 20 December 1922 in Rotterdam. The groom, Franciscus Hendrikus van Waardenburg, was born on 24 December 1888 as younger son of Adrianus Wijnandus van Waardenburg en Adriana van der Torren. His grandfather and great-grandfather were also named Adrianus Wijnandus van Waardenburg and were also living in Rotterdam.
Hendrik Agatha Warbie gave birth a daughter who died on 23 March 1923 in Rotterdam before she had been given a name.

Around June 1923 Franciscus Hendrikus van Waardenburg left his wife and disappeared. The next Hendrika Agatha gave birth to a son Gerrit who died 4 months later on 23 March 1925 in Rotterdam. He can't have been her husband's son. 
As an abandoned wife, Hendrika Agatha, started divorce procedures in 1934. She didn't know what had happened to her husband since he left, and thought he may have died. She indicated that she wanted to remarry.
A judge in Rotterdam decided at the end of 1935 to grant Hendrika Agatha Warbie a license to enter into another marriage, because nothing had been heard of her husband for over 10 years, and he had not responded to three published calls.

Later, Hendrika Agatha Warbie must have found out that her husband was still alive. When Hendrika Agatha Warbie was divorced on 19 January 1948, it was mentioned that her former husband, Franciscus Hendrikus van Waardenburg, was living in New Haven, Connecticut, U.S.A.

I have a common ancestor with Hendrika Agatha Warbie in Thomas Tristerom Warbie (±1670-1732).
