"This rule apparently is based on the fact that in Latin (as in all Romance languages), prepositions always precede a noun phrase and thus never appear in sentance-final position.
The Chicago Manual of the Style says:
"The traditional caveat of yesteryear against ending sentences with prepositions is, for most writers, an unnecessary and pedantic restriction... The ‘rule' prohibiting terminal prepositions was an ill-founded superstition.”
Bottom-line: write however the hell you like.
