The world watched in disbelief as Pakistan-British boxer Amir Khan used Twitter and Snapchat to accuse his wife Faryal Makhdoom Khan of everything from infidelity to money-grabbing.

A textbook case of what NOT TO do during a break-up.

Avoid name calling in public (or private)...
Especially if kids are involved, like in this case.

Don't drag a third person's name through the mud
Your relationship, your responsibility.

Don't burn your bridges in public
It makes it so much more difficult to patch up.

Amir Khan tweet

Don't be like Faryal Makhdoom Khan either!
Try the high road. It is really underrated.
