(Could you correct my English, please?) A friend of mine has been in two minds about getting a divorce recently. She and her husband were once in so much love, and they used to be inseparable. However, things have changed dramatically shortly after they got married. Her husband was no longer willing to hang out with her. He prefers to play mobile games and read online novels whenever he has free time. He has lost interest in her and doesn't show her enthusiasm to her anymore. What she wants most is companionship, but she can't even persuade her husband to go to the supermarket with her now, which makes her feel rather dejected and depressed. She is likely to give up on her unhappy marriage.

"A friend of mine has been in two minds about getting a divorce recently." Two minds isn't really an expression in English, so it's better to replace it with another word that has the same meaning. in this context, the word "hesitant" and "second-guessing" fits. I used "hesitant" in the correction, but if you want to use "second-guessing," I'd word it like this: "A friend of mine has been second-guessing her divorce." Also, the part with "doesn't show her enthusiasm to her anymore" sounds a little bit redundant because the word "her" appears twice in a very short interval. It's better to erase one "her" and keep the other.

You need hardly any corrections here. Divorce is sad, but sometimes necessary. 😔
