Divorce, by all means, but do it with dignity

Paul McCartney has some handy advice for people considering the end of their marriages - do it with dignity.

So, when you demand the return of cleaning fluids from your flat, take care to say please and thank you, for example.

"Remember that it is a private affair and that way [acting with dignity] you will probably get through it better, you will put less noses out of joint and I think it's a more dignified way to go about it, so that's what I try to do."

Don't be quick to rush out your damaging counter-leaks when your partner leaks against you: remain cool and aloof. Let your "concerned friends" do that.

Follow Paul's rules, and your divorce could proceed as smoothly as that of Sir Paul and Mrs. Mills. It's a compelling model, isn't it?
