“Working out for the better” is a set phrase in English that means “things turned out better.”

A: not really - it’s quite an old-fashioned word! It’s good to know what it means, but I never really use it myself.

If you swap the word “often” for “oftentimes” in the examples above, they would still be correct - but not “natural”
