their wives, in Poitou-Charente, France, last year.

Slurping a large Bordeaux Supérieur, Nigel announces, 'I think I'm going to divorce my wife, she hasn't

Stephen downs his glass of the red wine thoughtfully and after a while
responds, 'Think it over a bit more, Nige; women like that are hard to find.'
