Divorce is so liberating for some women

I have 2 friends that divorced in the past 2 years &  I must say they have changed overnight from being church mice to these confident women. I was looking at pics of them from the past and you would never say they are the same women. They now do their hair, nails, put on make up and wear trendy clothes. One even calls herself Bambie.

It has made me started looking at women and wondering if they are really being themselves or free to be themselves.

It''s amazing how women don''t even realize just how accommodating they are, and how much they change to be in line with what husbands want. It made me look at my life &  realize just how much i have changed too.

I'm not too sure about the mental health implications of choosing to call oneself Bambie !
But you're very right, not about marriage itself, but about some marriages / relationships, in which one partner ( often, but by no means always, the male ) dominates the other who assumes a traditional subservient role, stunting their growth as an individual.
Coming out from such a stunting environment can indeed be healthy and liberating. Maybe at times, if one has had no good role models, people might swerve into some rather odd life-styles, embracing them just because they're different from what they were used to, rather than necessarily because they're good in themselves.
