For what it's worth, during high school I had some pretty radical, and often bigoted, views, and I'm glad no one I knew IRL intervened. I got in enough late-night Internet arguments that I was forced to really inspect how much sense my worldview made, which wouldn't have happened if Mom or Dad had barged in and said "We need to have a talk about your posts about race and IQ."

I think this is probably because women are more likely to have deep friendships outside of their relationship, which has proven benefits on stress and mental health, and spending a lot of time with your partner can stifle that. This is believed to be why men's health outlooks improve when they get married.

I have looked at her computer browsing history and seen that she has been viewing a lot of extreme feminist websites. While I do get that she can make up her own mind, should I intervene?
I don't think you should intervene...she sounds like a very smart and perceptive child.
