Is divorce more common now because women are becoming more liberal and manipulative?

i mean back then, women would do whatever her man says so divorce and conflicts were less of an issue back then
Update: since the law favors women now, they easily can sue their husbands and lie about getting physically attacked
Update 2: a women can get away with lying to the police that she has been harassed or assaulted by men and the police would favor her
