I'm sure Andrew & Sarah knows that if they really want to move on with their love lives, then they will have to go about that in a responsible way. They are pretty much doing things the way they like at the moment. At least that's the vibe I'm getting from their interviews. They are pretty honset, frank and funny in interviews.

It was kind of "the best of both worlds" - when Beatrice and Eugenie were at home, they could all be together as a family; when they were at boarding school or uni, Sarah and Andrew didn't have to see much of each other if they didn't want to (it's a big house after all).

I think they have a special relationship, but maybe more of a very close friendship than something romantic these days. I don't think they could ever remarry because of the negative attitudes towards Sarah in the RF, and she surely wouldn't want that pressure again.

Perhaps in the long run, it would be best for them to live separately, so they could both "move on" romantically, especially now that the girls have both finished university and are fully fledged adults. I think perhaps Sarah would want her own place eventually, once she can afford it. Obviously right now, she's still getting back on her feet after her recent debt problems, and Andrew was so kind to support her with a place to live at this time.

As NGalitzine says, one problem for Sarah in the couple moving on is definitely the prospect of losing her title. I wouldn't describe it as a "meal ticket" as *I think Sarah's commercial success (books, TV, speaking engagements, etc.) are down to her own talent and hard work, but I do think that being Duchess of York is part of her "brand", and her prestige and earning potential would be lower without it. In a way, she's trapped - obliged to earn how own living, but (at least partially) dependant on her royal past in order to do so. Nevertheless, I'd love to see her find happiness with another man, and if he was wealthy enough to support her, so much the better.
I think that time has proven that Sarah will never be on her own financially. She obviously has a very difficult time handling money, as evidenced by her repeated debt problems. It is fine that she and Andrew have a good relationship but I don't think Sarah has any intention of ever living on her own. If that occurred, she might have to fund her ski trips and other vacations herself. I wouldn't say that she was a "gold-digger" in the beginning but I do think she is perfectly willing to be supported. An honestly, are her commercial endeavors all that successful? I mean to maintain a separate life and household away from Andrew?

At the height of Sarah's commercial success in NYC about a decade ago SHE was the one funding Andrew's lavish ski holidays. Whenever he was in New York he stayed at her luxury penthouse.

Sarah made a lot of $$, but her pattern of financial mismanagement and overspending once her contracts with Weight Watchers, Ocean Spray, and Wedgwood China ended continued.

She has been almost as generous to her ex as he has been to her...it's not all one-sided.

This discussion does not need to dominate two separate threads.

For now, all posts have been moved to
