A friend has been dating his girlfriend for 3 years and 3 years ago my friend had all sorts of problems but then he met his girlfriend, they've been dating 3 years and since then my friend has had a better life.
How can a woman change a man while in a relationship? Like how can a woman help a man live a better life,

I used to think that's impossible. That old habits die hard and that anybody who believe that a woman can change a man is delusional.
Until fairly recently, actually. My boyfriend is a changed man. Let me tell you, I'm the opposite of controlling. Being viewed as controlling is one of my top fears in a relationship, and something that I'm completely open with him about. If I ever feel like I might be the reason that he's not going to hang out with friends or even study for an exam because he chooses to hang with me instead, I always straight up tell him that he shouldn't in any way feel obligated to do so.
(In any way.. he's changed a lot since we first started dating. He checks in with me at least once a day, even if it's just a phone call to say nothing more than that he 'misses me'. He'll always ask me where I'd like to sit when we eat out, where I'd like to study if we're studying together, etc.. Hell, I just got back from studying with him all day just now and someone at the table next to us at the library told us they've never seeing people who are that nice. Being so courteous as to ask where the other would prefer to sit, if they could go to the coffee shop next door+grab them a coffee, etc..)
When we first got together, he was far more self-centered. He also tells me quite often how he 'feels so lucky to have me in his life'. That he doesn't feel like he did enough to deserve me. (crazy, I know. Anyhow, I'd like to think maybe, plain and simple, it was love that 'changed' him?)1

Because of love. When you fall in love, you start to see things more clearly, more positive way, you start to take better care of yourself and others. It changes you completely for better. It was not the woman that changed him, it was love that changed him.3
