Surface impression is your dog is dealing with some kind of trauma from the incident with your ex husband. Poor thing probably doesn't realize that most male humans aren't a threat.
She is not necessarily better with female strangers though. It's a very rare thing if she acts ok with any stranger and there is no rhyme or reason that I can see other than she tends to do better with people who have a friendly dog with them. I guess she trusts dog owners more? One day though we walked into the vet and this extremely tall man (I mean 6'9" or so) was in there with a lab and as soon as I saw him I was like ah shit. But, she was pretty well behaved. And I've noticed her being better with other people who have dogs that are friendly with her. But, even then, not always.
