In an interview published in today's Sunday Telegraph magazine, Sir Paul admitted that his children are having difficulty coming to terms with his forthcoming marriage to Heather Mills. He said:"I think a second marriage is hard for the children, no matter who it is. People in my position are told not to worry, that time will heal. But it's very difficult. They find it difficult to think of me with another woman. But it's how it is and how it must be, and I think that, more than anything, they want me to be happy and this is what makes me happy."Sir Paul admitted that the family is still suffering from the loss of Linda and he still feels that he is need of healing:"There is a lot of that for me. And I have a new woman in my life who I'm going to marry, so that's part of that, too. Heather has made me feel more at ease with things. After two full years of horror and doctors' offices and scares and diagnoses, I'm grateful not to have to spend my days doing that any more. I'm lucky to have found a good woman who is strong like Linda, and beautiful and positive and funny.
"I certainly didn't grieve enough for my mother. There was no such thing as a psychiatrist when I lost her. I saw one when Linda died and he said 'A good way to grieve is to cry one day and not cry the next, alternate days so you don't go down one tunnel'. I took his advice. I was very sad, in deep grief, but never suicidal. I'm too positive for that."
"I'm a romantic. I like Fred Astaire. I always say to young guys 'Be romantic', because not only do women love it, but you'll love it too'."
