What It's Like To Stay Home From War

Tracey Scharmann | Posted May 27, 2012 | Books

I don't know what it's like to go to war, but I know what it's like to stay home from war. I know what it's like to watch your husband on the tarmac---heave over, putting his hands on his knees only lifting his head to sob on my shoulder before he takes off.

Lydia Lovric | Posted May 27, 2012 | Canada Living

Shiloh is the daughter of movie star/humanitarian/"home wrecker" Angelina Jolie and her partner Brad Pitt. And she is almost always dressed as a boy.

Steps to Finding a Good Man

Deena Douara | Posted May 27, 2012 | Canada Living

This is not an article about how to get yourself married. It's not about making yourself emotionally available, or putting yourself out there, or not returning calls right away. It's not even about finding the right match for you. I don't really know you. What I can speak to though is how to discern good men from bad.
