In a series this week about Prince Charles and Princess Diana, the London Daily Express says the couple are approaching their 10th wedding anniversary next month with "a lifestyle that is not just separate beds, but separate holidays, separate friends, separate and rival households and almost, but not quite, separate homes. " In Poland last month, the paper says, they stayed on separate floors. They don't even fight anymore, it says. As if that weren't pain enough, back problems have caused Charles to withdraw from a polo match set for Tuesday, and he's been advised by his doctors to avoid the sport for at least a month, maybe more.

Our initial reaction to the news that Charles and Diana were splitsville was, no doubt, typically American: They have every right as human beings to go their separate ways, but how can they continue to reserve the right to become England's future king and queen? A king and a queen, whatever else is asked of them, should share the same palace. Otherwise, what's the point? This notion, we've since been told, is hopelessly starry-eyed. On this side of the Atlantic, the British monarchy may seem like something out of a fairy tale - or a soap opera - but over there it's very real.

DEAR ABBY: My ex-wife, "Gloria," and I have been divorced eight years, but have managed to remain civil to each other. Last year, my daughter had a birthday party to which I wanted to bring a date. Gloria decided that she would not attend because it would be "hurtful" to see me with another woman. After my daughter called me in tears, I canceled my date and went to the party alone. Now my daughter is about to be married and I want to bring a date to the ceremony. Again, Gloria has announced that she will forgo the pleasure of seeing our daughter get married "so I can have my way and prove to the world I'm able to get a date.

"The Double Life of Veronique," by Polish director Krzysztof Kieslowski, is a gently hypnotic fable about two women who lead separate lives, but who share an uncanny resemblance to each other. Kieslowski is flirting with the fanciful notion that for each person there is an exact double, or - at the very least - someone who shares the same thoughts and feelings. Your own feelings about the movie will no doubt depend on how much you are willing to accept the idea that our lives are ruled by moods and emotions that cannot always be explained.

Phil Collins has always seemed to be one of pop's worker bees, a real bloke. The drummer for progressive-rock group Genesis, he turned vocalist when singer Peter Gabriel split. Then the barrel-chested thumb of a man - whose already wispy hairline receded before he had his first solo hit - famously flew from London to Philly in time to play both Live Aid shows on the same day in 1985. So it seems strange that Collins, 53, has joined divalike elders Cher, Gloria Estefan and Kiss in pop's surefire money-making trend: the farewell tour.

He might have assaulted them, but he didn't kill them, Marvin Jennings told the judge. Jennings, confessed sex offender, used that argument to try to get leniency from Common Pleas Judge Angelo A. Guarino after pleading guilty to four attacks on women last year. It didn't work. Guarino sentenced Jennings, 24, to 12 to 28 years in prison yesterday. "He has changed four separate lives," said Assistant District Attorney Gail Fairman. "They will never have the same independence.

LOS ANGELES - How do we react to the presence of evil and injustice when, as an adult or a child, it intrudes on our world? It's easy enough to say "you fight it," but the reality is never that simple. When do we act, how far do we go, what price are we willing to pay? When, if ever, is retaliation legitimate? How do we deal, finally, with the pain and suffering of the world? The Danish filmmaker Susanne Bier has a potent gift for turning abstract, moral questions like these into edge-of-your-seat compelling dramas.

Hillary Clinton's comment in an interview on Today - "The only people who count in any marriage are the two that are in it" - is absolutely true. Despite our fairy-tale image of the ideal marriage, the reality is that every marriage is different. Some patterns and configurations, however, do emerge. The following are examples. The true partnership. This is a marriage of true equals. As partners, some men and women want someone who can share on many different levels. They work together in all aspects of their lives, juggling work schedules, children's schedules and romantic schedules.

FORMER "Saturday Night Live" cast member Chris Kattan ("Corky Romano," "A Night at the Roxbury") became the latest celeb to separate before some guests even got home from the wedding. Kattan filed for legal separation from model-wife Sunshine Tutt after only eight weeks of marriage. Tutt probably caught a glimpse of his old Mango sketch tapes. The quickie couple, who wisely seem to have a pre-nup, wed June 28 in Yosemite Valley. They spent roughly a month together and now there ain't no Sunshine when she's gone.

AFTER 40 YEARS of marriage, ex-Vice President Al Gore and his wife, Tipper , are separating. Was it Al's uncensored, sexually explicit rapping? Did Tipper finally come across an inconvenient truth? Is this really more significant than the separation of Heidi and Spencer ? According to an e-mail circulated among the couple's friends, relatives and colleagues yesterday, the Gores said it was "a mutual and mutually supportive decision that we have made together following a process of long and careful consideration.

The old Hollywood adage - that a true star is someone who can bring big audiences to bad movies - will be tested on Leonardo DiCaprio and his latest vehicle, "The Man in the Iron Mask. " DiCaprio, on the strength of the box-office success of "Titanic," has upped his asking price from $2 million to $20 million per picture. We'll find out if he's worth it this weekend, when he's asked to anchor this low-energy version of Alexandre Dumas' classic story of intrigue and derring-do in the court of King Louis XIV. Since DiCaprio's fans are young and perhaps more likely to have read Nancy Drew than Dumas, we'll steer around some of the the story's well-known twists and turns.

Princess Di may turn in her tarnished tiara on Friday. On that day two years ago, she and her cheating hubby started to live separate lives, making them eligible for a friendly and mutually agreed upon divorce, according to the law of their land. Books (authorized and otherwise), confessions, spying and rumors have fueled speculation among Prince Charles' subjects as to his future as the heir apparent. Unless the twosome do something in legalese soon, Diana, more popular than Charles, would become queen if some accident befelled Chuck's mom, Queen Elizabeth, and he ascends to the throne.
