Check out some of the comments on the tweet:

@LeratoN_ responded:

“Because divorce benefits them more than men. While men are basically starting over, women are working on body goals and getting back on the streets, no child maintenance, while he's losing half, she's gaining half.”

@NtshengulanaK said:

“Because they were caregivers to their husbands and sometimes their children if they had any. After the divorce, they have plenty of time for themselves.”

@Mgulukudu__ replied:

“Because y'all come with nothing, then leave with half an empire. Wouldn't you thrive nawe?”

@paulamosopa1 commented:

“I think it's because they now find their true self. They no longer need approval. They don't live to please anyone but themselves. Others even discover that they have curves which they never realised they had while married.”

@lmt_mazibuko wrote:

“I personally think it's because women value marriage more than men before they ever get married. Then realise that marriage is not everything they thought it was. So after the divorce, they will only then start to appreciate the single life they once thought was a bad thing.”
