Happy Divorcees & shoes and chats

Well, what an absolutely non-surprising article. Perhaps the reason that women feel "relieved, liberated and happy" after a divorce is because they actually are liberated and free. Marriage remains a patriarchal institution wherein, more often than not, women become frustrated and depressed. I have no doubt that there possibly are some out there, but I have never known a marriage of equals. It is an outdated tradition that kills the love and respect within relationships, by forcing people into restrictive gender roles. So, yes - I can imagine that most women would feel liberated after a divorce.
