'Be stipulated' is okay?

Mmm like
She didn't want to be stipulated by (someone's) mother or wife, but she'd like to be accepted just by herself at least once . Does this expression make sense?
A: To my knowledge, that does not make sense unless you want to say that "she" is the [thing] that is being stipulated (i.e. the thing that is part of a bargain or agreement).

규정되다 does not seem to have a reliably direct translatable word in English, so the English translation changes depending on the context.

I'm also unsure what you're trying to say with "she'd like to be accepted just by herself at least once."
Q: Como é que se diz isto em Inglês (EUA)? Mmm hmm
A: it's a sound, not a word per say.

I don't think you need 'just'. By saying 'even', you're implying that there's someone stronger than you.
