A monthlong dispute between President Fernando Collor and his wife, Rosane, appears to have ended with a hug and a kiss.

The public display of affection - the first since Collor removed his wedding band last month - came at a swearing-in ceremony for the head of a charity formerly under Rosane Collor's control.After reports that Rosane Collor dipped into disaster-relief funds to help friends and relatives, Collor ordered her to resign. She resisted, finally stepping down Tuesday when a new president was sworn in as head of the Brazilian Legion of Assistance.
