    My wife and I will be traveling on a R/T on the same PNR. On the inbound legs, she will not continue on to the ticketed final destination. Should I split the PNR? If I do, what excuse do I use as a reason to do so?

    I'd split the PNR. I dunno that you need a reason. Maybe upgrade instrument use or something?

    If it's the final segment, I'm not sure it'll really matter will it?

    It is the final segment, but since I will be traveling on to the original destination, I don't want to get hassled.

    It wouldn't hurt to split the PNR just in case her skipping the final flight gets noted on your FF account. It's unlikely to cause trouble, but if there's no advantage to being on the same PNR, I'd ask that it be split as an extreme precaution.

    If asked for a reason, you could say that in case of IROPs, it will be more important to get to your destination than to be kept together, and that you would want an OPUP if the opportunity arises even if you and your wife would not be together. This is very reasonable. You might even add that you only just noticed that you two were booked on a single PNR.

    United Agents don't really care about why someone wants to split a PNR... There's a multitude of reasons that people would want to split the PNRs, so to the OP...I'd just call UA and request that you want to split the PNR...If they truly asked you can just say "for upgrade reasons".
