Hi there! Which is the correct form?:

She divorced from her husband

She divorced her husband

Is it correct to say: She is a middle-classed divorcee?

Does this sentence sounds OK?: Her repentance was based on some dreamed sensual of a redeemer.

Is the preposition 'in' correct in the sentence: The poem which centres in sadness.....

Is the preposition 'for' correct in the phrase"sustitue for"

Thanks a lot

You don't need to say "from her husband." That's who a woman would naturally be divorced from.

She is divorced is all you need. Unless you want to say something like "she is divorced from her first husband, but happily married again now."
