I'm Lucy, and I'd be happy to answer your questions today. I'm sorry to hear about your situation.
In Pennsylvania, the statute of limitations on breach of contract is only four years. So, if the agreement was that she'd pay you back when she got divorced, she can only be sued if her divorce happened within the past 4 years. Once the statute of limitations expires, she'd have to have affirmed the debt and made another agreement to pay in order for you to be able to sue her.
