You haven't posted the entire sentence.
With more information, we'll be able to help you.
Instead of moving out of the marriage, Ruby thinks the only way to cope with the situation and yet ignore Johnwoodrow is to start smoking and drinking.
Instead of dissolving the marriage . . .
Thanks. I have one more. I have to rephrase the word "moves on"
Inspite of her experience with Johnwoodrow, Ruby moves on forgiving him after his death but did not give up her bad habit-smoking.
I'd just eliminate the words "moves on."
Ruby forgives him . . .
