Author's Note: How does etiquette change as your relationships evolve?
As someone who is divorced, I've seen firsthand the damage not paying attention to basic rules of etiquette can cause -- and how hard it is to pay attention to them when things aren't going well. My own two cents are to start out with kindness and consideration for the other person and ask for the same in return. Good manners go a long way toward smoothing the rocky places in any relationship.
