Re: If Justine had not split / broken up with Pierre earlier this year...
Since we're playing "what if" - I'd say that would depend on the state of the marriage and how happy she was in it.
As it seems like it was on the rocks, yes, breaking up probably helped her.
If she were still in love, and happy being married (and he DID make her very happy at one time, lets not forget), I'd bet the divorce would have had the opposite effect.
Reason is poor propaganda when opposed by the yammering, unceasing lies of shrewd and evil and self-serving men.
