Rod Stewart, wife separated for two weeks

Los Angeles: Grammy-award winning singer Rod Stewart, who is married to Penny Lancaster for the last six years, has revealed that they once broke up for two weeks after an argument.

Stewart, 68, said that he had penned a song for his new record during the time apart, reported Us magazine.

"Penny and I broke up for two weeks and the song is about that time. I asked her for a photo of herself in a frame so that I could see her when I went to bed and when I woke up," he said.

Although the two were able to ultimately patch things up and focus on keeping their marriage intact, Stewart said the two-week break up made him reflect on his past relationships and love in general.
"My relationship rule is, `Don`t argue after a glass of wine?leave debating until the morning`. I have always loved women, won some, lost some, but it`s not about the magic touch, it`s about being a better person and a good listener. I met Penny in my 50s and if I had not learned by that point in my life, I was never going to," he added.
